L.Siabour4 Stars Out Of 5November 3, 2008L.SiabourThis is an excellent small group study on Martin Luther. The study is comprised of six chapters. Each contains a small sample of the writings of Martin Luther, and compares his thoughts with the truth of the Word of God by asking the students very thought provoking questions. The class activities for each chapter were a bit weak and the bio information could have been more detailed, but other than that this is an excellent way to introduce Christians to the writings of Martin Luther.

Tell us a little about yourself. I am a graduate of Luther Seminary, St. Paul, Minnesota, and Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Ft. Worth, Texas. I am an associate editor at InterVarsity Press. Previously I worked for CBD, served on the staffs of four churches and taught at a Christian college.
What was your motivation behind this project? Even though I am not a Lutheran, I love much of Luther's theology. My motivation in writing this study guide was to (1) expose people to some of Luther's writings, 2) show how his theology is firmly based on Scripture, and (3) create a tool through which God might change people's lives.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I hope that those who do the six studies would learn, as Luther did, to depend not on themselves for salvation but on God's promise and grace found in Jesus Christ. I hope that they will think long and hard about the place of the law in the Christian life. Finally, I hope that they will be stimulated to read more of Luther.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? Who are my influences? That's hard to answer. Luther is obviously one. My wife, Candie, is another. I've been influenced by many authors, professors, friends and family members from diverse backgrounds, and all of them have influenced me one way or another. That said, my chief influences have been theologically orthodox Protestants.
