Luther on Galatians

Lately, I've been listening to Rod Rosenbladt's lectures on Luther's commentary on Galatians. There's some great stuff in there. But I've decided to take a break and repent of my failure to read the actual book. You can download an audibook version for free from Librovox. Paul condemns all who attempt to come between us and forgiveness in Christ and so does Luther. Luther's warnings apply just as much in our day as he did when he wrote them. Luther's condemnation of the teachings of Rome, the anabaptists, and Mohammedans still apply. Calvinists who read or listen to this will also get a good understanding of the differences between Calvinism and Lutheranism. Unlike the rest of the groups mentioned, Luther does not mention the Calvinists by name but does warn against looking to God's attributes and being distracted from God revealed in Christ-crucified by becoming obsessed with the hidden God.
