Publisher's Summary

"The Bible is alive," declared Martin Luther, "it speaks to me; it has feet, it runs after me; it has hands, it lays hold of me." The Protestant Reformation's seminal leader possessed a gift for evocative speech, and he was as articulate and outspoken in private as he was in public. Fortunately for posterity, some of Luther's loyal followers took note of his informal speeches.

The Table Talk of Martin Luther consists of excerpts from the great reformer's conversations with his students and colleagues, in which he comments on life, the Church, and the Bible. Collected by Johannes Aurifaber, Anton Lauterbach, and other close associates of Luther, these absorbing anecdotes reveal the speaker's personality and wisdom. This text is based on the English translation by lawyer and author William Hazlitt, son of the celebrated essayist.

Inside the mature mind of Luther

Probably wouldn’t be a good read for those with little Christian understanding and fairly good knowledge of bible. But one looking for a well aged bottle will find this satisfying. I listened twice.

Excellent written but incomplete audio

The writings of Martin Luther is a must for any Protestant Christian or someone who is seeking the meaning of Protestantism.

The audio quality is good and the narrator is excellent. However, for anyone who own the book, Table Talk, you will notice that many sections have been omitted by the audio version. Important parts on the Pope and Catholicism are left out for an unexplained reason. Perhaps it is just the day in which we are living with ecumenism at the order of the day.

It remains a audio worthwhile having but I would encourage any serious reader or researcher to buy the hard copy.

God bless
