In sheer terror he made a vow to his patron saint. In disillusionment he questioned the practices of the church. In firm resolve he nailed his list of protests to the church door. And in utter joy he grasped the liberating idea that the righteousness of God is given, not earned. These are the defining moments of Luther's life and most, if not all, Christians know these defining moments. Yet much of his life remains a mystery. This current lack of familiarity with Luther's work is precisely the reason for this book. It is an invitation to spend some time at Luther's table, to examine his life, and to hear his ideas. These ideas and thoughts are not only relics of the past that inspired a whole generation in Luther's own day. They also have the power to impact the church today and to ignite our own generation to a passionate quest for God and His truth. So this book is offered and, although it points to Luther, it directs us to Christ. Ultimately, that is Martin Luther's legacy.
