New Annotated Luther series from Fortress Press with a 30% discount!

April 1st, 2016 by Beth A. Lewis

Is reading Martin Luther’s essential writings something that has been on your “to do” list?  Mine, too!  But, sometimes I find his writing, that made perfect sense to readers in his context nearly 500 years ago, a bit more challenging in the 21st century.  Because of that I am very excited about our new  Annotated Luther series from my Fortress Press colleagues and some very talented Luther and Reformation scholars from across the Church! This series helps people like me to explore Luther’s writings alongside helpful annotations to  with greater depth and clarity. And, with the 500th anniversary of the Reformation just around the corner in 2017, there is no time like the present for reading some of Martin Luther’s key writings!

Volume 1: The Roots of Reform and Volume 2: Word and Faith are already available and Volumes 3 and 4 of the series will be published this summer.

Annotated Luther Vol 3 & 4
Annotations in these volumes are designed to provide key contextual background for people, events, theological issues and controversies, interpretive notes, and Scripture references to which Luther alludes but which he does not include in the text. Each volume is also enhanced with maps, illustrations, timelines, art, and photos to bring the context of Luther’s writings to life. To see a sample chapter from Volume 1: The Roots of Reform, click here.

In order to encourage congregations and individuals to purchase this series, Fortress Press is offering a standing order discount.  A “standing order” means you will receive each book in the series as soon as it is published with a 30% off discount. New subscribers to the standing order program may also order previously published titles in the series at 30% off when setting up their subscription. To sign up for a standing order, simply call Augsburg Fortress at 800-328-4648 and reference The Annotated Luther series standing order code: ANNOTATLUT.

So, if like me, you’d like to read Martin Luther’s words, but could use some guidance, I’d encourage you to add The Annotated Luther series to your bookshelf!
