For those not interested in the Reformed and Lutheran Together movement, may I suggest a curious (for lack of a better word) Lutheran blog, Back To Luther... and the old (German) Missouri Synod. This blogger has put together a number of helpful posts in regard to Luther research. He recently compiled links to the Saint Louis Edition of Luther's Works, as well as alerting me the fact that Vogel's Cross Reference of Luther's Works is now back in print (this is a book I've wanted to get for years). He's also compiled Luther's Timeline – events surrounding Luther (w/ download), and Luther's Letters – largest cross reference available. This is great stuff for those of you interested in Reformation-related history. This is the sort of stuff that interests me the most in terms of research. I wish I came up with the above material!
On the other hand, he also appears to have issues with Concordia Publishing (and Lutherans in general), so he makes PDF's available of books they're supposed to be printing. This seems a bit unscrupulous to me. I'm very grateful to the work Concordia Publishing does. They've put out some outstanding material. The recent volumes of LW are meticulously researched and brilliantly translated. In regard to customer service, they've been wonderful as well. I'm grateful for what they do.
Obviously, a Lutheran in conflict with Concordia almost certainly has little love for anything that smells remotely Reformed. Consider the following comment:
For anyone (like me) who has struggled with researching Luther's writings between all the sources in the different languages, I have discovered a valuable online resource: Steve Born's Luther Index. I found this through James Swan's resource links on his BeggarsAll blog website, on the right side under the section "Luther's Works, etc.", labeled "An Index to the Works of Martin Luther". The BeggarsAll website also has other fairly extensive online resources on Luther's work here. However, some of the English translations by Reformed translators are suspect. (May Mr. Swan throw off his false Reformed "assurance", and accept the Bible's teaching of universal grace. He will never be able to fully refute the errors of Romanists and he will never fully understand Martin Luther until he renounces the Reformed restriction of God's grace.)The last comment simply doesn't follow. One can "fully understand Martin Luther" or any other subject for that matter, by simply being a diligent student of history and theology.
