Item description for Luther's Spirituality (Classics of Western Spirituality) by Philip D. W. Krey, Peter D. S. Krey & Timothy J. Wengert...
Overview This volume in the Classics of Western Spirituality offers a unique selection of texts, some newly translated, by Martin Luther. These texts represent the varieties of ways Luther understood how one believed and behaved as a Christian. This comprehensive collection includes both his critique of late medieval spiritualities that he inherited and his various constructive proposals. The book is designed for the reader to discover the rich complex of issues that Luther contributes to the discussion of spirituality. The collection is divided into three sections of fresh and modified translations: Luther's Spirituality in a Late-Medieval Context, Teaching the New Spirituality, and The New Path to Prayer which also includes various songs. The volume includes Luther's spiritual classics like the German edition of the Freedom of a Christian, the Magnificat, The Sermon at Coburg on Cross and Suffering, letters of consolation, biblical prefaces and commentaries like Psalm 117 and 118, a Simple Way to Pray, and selections from the Large Catechism. There is nothing like it on the market.

Reviews - What do customers think about Luther's Spirituality (Classics of Western Spirituality)?
Good Collection of Luther's Pastoral Works Apr 12, 2008
I am enjoying this collection. My only regret is the imposition of an alien form of language on Luther: inclusive language. I would prefer simply to read what the original author wrote, not what a translator believes he should have said.
But this is a good overview collection, with resources in it not available elsewhere.
