Publisher's Summary

First published in 1525, Martin Luther's Bondage of the Will is acknowledged by theologians as one of the great masterpieces of the Reformation. It is Luther response to Desiderius Erasmus' Diatribe on Free Will, written in his direct and unique style, combining deep spirituality with humor. Luther writes powerfully about man's depravity and God's sovereignty. The crucial issue for Luther concerned what ability free will has, and to what degree it is subject to God's sovereignty. For Luther, this key issue of free will is directly connected to God's plan of salvation. Is man able to save himself, or is his salvation entirely a work of divine grace? This work is vital to understanding the primary doctrines of the Reformation and will long remain among the great theological classics of Christian history.

Wow. Thank you

This book was very good. It articulates the reformed view in the simplest terms as possible. I hope many modern evangelicals take the time to read this. It is worth it.

Great change of pace,quality writing, great reader

If you could sum up Bondage of the Will in three words, what would they be?

entertaining, informative, riveting

What about Nadia May’s performance did you like?

I love listening to her tell Luther's antagonist off in such a genteel way.

Wrong voice for Bondage.

fantastic material as is anything written by Martin Luther, but the voice is hard to listen to. she's a fine reader, but Luther should be read by a man, preferably with a German accent.

Great book but don't like the recording

It is unsettling as a LC-MS member to buy a recording of a book written by our great church leader who is a man and have to read and recorded by a woman. I could not listen as I could not get off the fact that this not right a woman reading what is written in first person by Martin Luther read by a lady when indeed Martin was a great man.

British woman with bad accent

The narrator was absolutely terrible. I was looking forward to this book, but can't understand her British accent. I've only listened to 3 minutes of her reading out of the 11 hours I purchased and I am ready to ask for a refund.
