From the publisher:

Written in a down-to-earth, accessible style, this timeless classic communicates the essential teachings of Martin Luther.

A quick read into the heart of Martin Luther and his concept on Christian Liberty from the Catholic Church. ( )
  gusrocha | Feb 12, 2016 |
The "liberty" in question being the liberty to ignore the suffering in the world because faith not works will get us into heaven. Or maybe the liberty to hate and eschew the glories of creation--your food, drink, music, dance, sex--because the soul suffers not their absence and is reborn each day anew (so fuck the body). In either case, this is pernicious as a loyalty oath. ( )

A work that every Christian ought to own and be familiar with. The "marriage" illustration is one of the most profound insights Luther gave the church. ( )

This is an awesome piece. I just printed it off the web, I'm sure it's found in one of many Luther's published works. He absolutely destroys justification by works in the first part of this work and then goes on to teach the proper place of works in the individual Christian's life as well as in the life of the local church. He talks a bit about disputable matters from 1 Cor 8-10 and Romans 14-15:2 as well. Great stuff.

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0800636074, Paperback)

The subject of freedom is both timely and poignantly relevant today. For the Christian, this freedom is liberty from sin and death, and the opportunity to serve one's neighbor. Written in a simple style, "Christian Liberty" conveys significant spiritual insight into the grace of God and liberating faith in Christ Jesus.
