Martin Luther in His Own Words Book Excerpt:

Though most of the Protestant world can trace its roots back to the Reformation, many people today have only a vague knowledge of Martin Luther's writings. "Didn't he write the Ninety-Five Theses?" Jack Kilcrease and Erwin Lutzer step into this vacuum with a carefully selected collection of Luther's works. Centered around the five solas of the Reformation (sola Scriptura, sola fide, sola gratia, sola Christus, soli Deo gloria), the selections offer readers an accessible primer on works that are foundational to the theology of Protestantism in all its forms. Introductions to each writing include an explanation of the historical context and the theological significance of the piece. Students of the Bible, pastors, teachers, and seminary students will find this collection an enlightening introduction to Luther in his own words and a useful addition to their libraries.

The Word Is Near You Book Excerpt:

Beginning with the desires of our hearts and ending with the priesthood of all believers, this series of meditations traces a path through some central concerns of the Reformation. Along this path, the authors, all faculty at Wycliffe College, engage with biblical passages which were important at that time and remain just as vital today in working out what it means to be a Christian, what it means to be the people of God. It seems appropriate, given the central place Scripture had for the reformers, that we should follow their lead in looking to the Bible in the context of the life of the church. While some church communities enthusiastically proclaim their Reformation roots, others look askance at particular reformers and seek to distance themselves from the whole of the Reformation. Yet the Reformation is not an era we in the West can simply ignore; it is bred in our bones, runs through our veins, and shapes our life together in myriad ways. These meditations are not simply historical explorations or an exercise in documenting past events. Rather, the authors grapple with questions which we continue to struggle with today--questions of faith and grace, sin and salvation, work and worship. These meditations will provoke discussion and broaden our theological understanding while guiding us into a deeper understanding of the faith.

Pete Seeger in His Own Words Book Excerpt:

Long an icon of American musical and political life, Pete Seeger has written eloquently in a diverse array of publications but nowhere is his life story more personally chronicled than in these, his private writings, documents and letters stored for decades in his family barn. Pete Seeger: His Life in His Own Words, collects Seeger's letters, notes, published articles, rough drafts, stories and poetry - creating the most intimate picture yet available of Seeger as a musician, an activist and a family man. The book covers the passions, personalities and experiences of a lifetime of struggle - from the pre-WWII labour movement and the Communist Party, to Woody Guthrie, the Civil Rights movement and the struggle against the war in Vietnam. The portrait that emerges is not of a saint, but a flesh-and-blood man, struggling to understand his time and his place.

The Oxford Handbook of Martin Luther s Theology Book Excerpt:

As celebrations of the five-hundredth anniversary of Martin Luther's initiation of the most dramatic reform movement in the history of Christianity approach, 47 essays by historians and theologians from 15 countries provide insight into the background and context, the content, and the impact of his way of thought. Nineteenth-century Chinese educational reformers, twentieth-century African and Indian social reformers, German philosophers and Christians of many traditions on every continent have found in Luther's writings stimulation and provocation for addressing modern problems. This volume offers studies of the late medieval intellectual milieus in which his thought was formed, the hermeneutical principles that guided his reading and application of the Bible, the content of his formulations of Christian teaching on specific topics, his social and ethic thought, the ways in which his contemporaries, both supporters and opponents, helped shape his ideas, the role of specific genre in developing his positions on issues of the day, and the influences he has exercised in the past and continues to exercise today in various parts of the world and the Christian church. Authors synthesize the scholarly debates and analysis of Luther's thinking and point to future areas of research and exploration of his thought.

Edward Farris In His Own Words Farmer Student Hitchhiker Soldier Father Politician Lobbyist Traveler Kentuckian Book Excerpt:

"At the insistent demand of [my granddaughters] and the Farris clan generally, with the microphone and recording device furnished by my dear friend, I am attempting to start on an extended investigation and reporting of my past and my present." With these words, Edward Farris began a fascinating 7.5-hour autobiographical audio recording: growing up in rural Kentucky in the 1920s, doing his part to liberate France in WWII, serving closely with two governors and so much more. Part 1 of this book contains Ed's wonderful story in his own unique voice. Marching across France as an infantryman towards the end of WWII, Ed was involved in many engagements, both major and minor. In 1998, he sat down with a retired army colonel and spent four and a half hours recounting in great detail the two most significant of these battles: when his entire battalion was trapped on the wrong side of the Moselle River with German tanks fast approaching; and when he was knocked out of the war by German artillery fire in Achain, France. Part 2 contains these thrilling first-hand accounts in which Ed explores the battles that raged around him and the turmoil that raged within. As executive secretary (now termed "chief of staff") to Governors Clements and Wetherby from 1948-1955, Ed was intimately involved in the inner workings of Kentucky state politics. Four different times, Ed sat down with interviewers seeking insight on Ed's experiences and the powerful men he was indispensable to. Part 3 contains all of the rich details and stories from these compelling conversations. He loved. He lost. He fought. He learned. He traveled. He raised four children and was beloved by eight grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren. Come take a journey and experience the unique, interesting story of this charming man's life, told in his own voice.

Martin Luther Catholic Critical Analysis and Praise Book Excerpt:

The views set forth here are certainly one-sided, and purposely so, in order to form a conscious counter-argument to the accepted Protestant “mythology,” so to speak, of Martin Luther. His many commendable qualities are well covered in any Protestant biography (and some can be rightly classified as virtual “hagiographies”). The full, multi-faceted, complex truth concerning important historical figures is invariably more fascinating than the usual myths that circulate about. I aim to present Luther as he was: no more, no less: as fairly as I can, but “warts and all,” too. I do not regard Luther (like many Catholic biographers and critics throughout history) as an essentially “evil” or “bad” man. I don’t deny his good intentions and sincerity at all. Part Two: the “praise” section of this book, runs 83 pages, or about 34% of all the material from Chapter One to the Bibliography.
