Take Up and Read: Reformation Sunday Edition

Here are some links I enjoyed as Reformation Sunday approaches.

George Grant lists his favorite Martin Luther quotes. I would have enjoyed at least one quote with some spicy language. But the ones listed are very good.

Steven Lawson has been doing a series of blog posts at Ligonier about various reformers. Here are the posts on John Calvin, Heinrich Bullinger, William Tyndale, Ulrich Zwingli and Martin Luther

At you can get Martin Luther in his own words for free this week. For those of you who only know Luther because you have heard about him or sung "A Mighty Fortress" this book would be a good introduction to some of his thinking.

Also at Ligonier you can download for free R.C. Sproul's new book for children entitled "The Barber Who Wanted to Pray." It tells the story of why Luther wrote his classic on prayer called "A Simple Way to Pray."

Finally, one of the great contributions of the reformers was on the subject of justification by faith. Uri Brito, a pastor in Florida, has posted some thoughts by Peter Leithart on what justification is.

Soli Deo Gloria

Let the saints be joyful in glory, let them sing aloud on their beds, let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two edged sword in their hand, to execute vengeance on the nations, and punishments on the peoples; to bind the kings with chains and their nobles with fetters of iron. Psalm 149:5-8
