Did Luther Regret the Reformation?

I've been told the age of the "blog" is over, but I still enjoy this format! I'm not at all fond of Facebook, and even less of Twitter.

While it may seem that I do not post as much as I used to, I'm still actively involved in maintaining this blog. Based on all the primary sources that are now readily available online, I've been revising many of my older entries. I've been fixing dead hyperlinks (as I come across them), adding the primary source information, reformatting text, and doing some slight editing when necessary.  

I've spent the last few weeks revising all the entries in my series, Did Luther Regret the Reformation?  The entries in this series were originally posted in 2010. The revised entries have scrupulous documentation back to the primary sources along with English translations and context. I was amazed, once again, to research quotes that appear to be one quote, but then when they are placed back in context, the one quote was actually pieced together like Frankenstein's monster from seven paragraphs!

I primarily track obscure Reformation quotes down for myself. It's like looking for treasure, never knowing what one will find once a context is located and the quote is placed back in it. If anyone benefits from the material I post, well that's icing on the cake.

Regards,  James

Try to find old posts on facebook... or even do a simple search... it's a mess... blogs are better.
