The Bondage of the Will by Martin Luther
Martin Luther (1483-1546), considered one of the most influential Church reformers in history, was a German monk, priest, professor, and great theologian. Lutherans and Protestants are deeply influenced by his precise understanding of Scripture and doctrine. In The Bondage of the Will, he responds to Erasmus’ Diatribe on Free Will with powerful words, sometimes rather colorful words, and a great passion for exposing the absolute truths about man’s depravity, God’s sovereignty, and free will. This theological classic is a must read for anyone seeking a complete understanding of grace, free will, and God’s plan for salvation.
