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.

The Correct Emphasis in Relationships Between Disagreeing Christians

"I have little hope of accomplishing this promise of revelation (in Phil. 3:16) in men who differ about contested truths until we first accomplish the obedience of walking suitably and answerably by the same rules that we do agree on. Every day I am more persuaded of this because I see men for the most part spending their strength and time more to oppose things they disagree with than to practice the things they and others agree are most necessary."
