The Epistles of St. Peter and St. Jude Preached and Explained

Many people have a skewed view of Martin Luther because they've only been exposed to his polemic writings. However, if you really want to know Luther's heart, you need to read some of his sermons, letters, and commentaries. In the latter category, his commentary on Galatians is the most famous, but this set of commentaries on the epistles of Peter and Jude may be an even better place to start. Luther's pastoral concern shines through every page.

Outside of its historical significance, it holds up as a good commentary in its own right. Luther clearly and practically expounds the message of these epistles with excellent application to the Christian life.

100 Days of Theological Clerihews
Day 1: Saint Augustine of Hippo

It appears I have slacked off posting of late. Life gets busy, and the blog is not high on the priority list. However, I'm going to try to get back into blogging regularly, and in order to do that I've chosen a project that won't take massive amounts of daily time. I'm going to try to spend 100 days writing clerihews about theologians throughout history. "What is a clerihew?" you ask. Click here to find out.

It's only appropriate to start with the man Thomas Aquinas called "The Theologian": Saint Augustine of Hippo. (For the record, I'm not sure if the nomenclature of "The Theologian" means that Augustine was a Time Lord.) Anyway, here goes...
Augustine of Hippo

Aurelius Augustine,
Whom God did predestine,
Wept in despair
Over stealing a pear.
