Item description for Table Talk (Pure Gold Classics) by Martin Luther...
Overview Martin Luther's Table Talk is a compendium of excerpts taken from conversations with his students and colleagues, who furiously scribbled notes as he spoke. Reading them, it's easy to imagine all of them sitting around the table, eating and drinking and discussing issues of great concern to reformists. These excerpts are frequently anecdotal, highly opinionated, sometimes sublime, sometimes unsophisticated, occasionally brutal... and always unequivocating. Right or wrong, Luther has his say.

An interesting read Nov 16, 2006
This book is perhaps the most candid look we have into the life and thoughts of Luther. It has its spiritually inspiring moments but for the most part is just good solid Luther logic.
Great thoughts; terrible editing Oct 30, 2006
Martin Luther never ceases to amaze and inspire me with his brilliance and insights. This edition is so poorly edited, however, that there are mispellings throughout and some sentences have not been corrected for grammar. Since this work is in the public domain, you would think that the publishing house would have spent the minimal expense to edit it. It makes great reading but no thanks to the publisher.
A TRUTHFUL LOOK!!! / MUST HAVE SOME TRUTH... Jul 30, 2006
From one of the greatest thinkers of all time. We owe so much to this man, that we ought to at least consider what this document tries to teach us. This of course does NOT reflect this group entirely, for there are GOOD people in ALL groups. However, we must study this book and draw from it the warnings that GOD has given us through Marin Luther. A GREAT read even if you are not religious.
Piece of History Sep 15, 2005
If you can get past the fact that the Protestants are just as delusional as the Catholics, it is interesting reading and a nice slice of history. But you have to be a history buff to enjoy this type of work.
