In this, the first complete English translation based on Luther's own German text, John Frymire renders Luther's distinctive style into modern, readable American English. He also offers an introduction to Luther's life and work, thorough notes on historical and Biblical references in the text, an annotated bibliography, and a selection of related documents designed to help students set this seminal work of Reformation thought into its historical and theological context.
