Recent Reformation / Luther Postings
Here's a few things I came across over the last few days from a few different perspectives:
The Fireproof Martin Luther (Reformation 21).
This is a recent offering from Aaron Denlinger on what is usually referred to as "Incombustible Luther." For an intriguing study of this -and probably what was used as the main source for this article, yet unattributed by Mr. Denlinger, see: R.W. Scribner, Popular Culture and Popular Movements in Reformation Germany (London: The Hambledon Press, 1987). Chapter 15 is entitled, "Incombustible Luther: the Image of the Reformer in Early Modern Germany" (Much of this chapter is available via a free preview, but reading the chapter in its entirety is well worth it).

Our friends on the Non-Catholic Religions Forum at Catholic Answers attempt to figure out "what Luther saw in his view of Catholicism that made him constantly fear for his salvation."
Looking For a Luther Quote (Luther Quest)
A Lutheran is looking for where Luther said, "Where there is no command or promise in God's Word there is no need."
My Opinion of Martin Luther (Taylor Marshall)
I found this 2013 recording from Tiber swimmer Taylor Marshall on his main page. A lot of fluff before discussing the topic. Fast forward to 6 min. in. Marshall says Luther should have obeyed the papacy, even if the papacy was wrong. True martyrs have been persecuted by the Roman church.
