Description of Theologica Germanica by Anonymous
This work was discovered and published in 1516 by Martin Luther, who said of it that "Next to the Bible and St. Augustine, no book has ever come into my hands from which I have learnt more of God and Christ, and man and all things that are." It has since appealed to Christians of all persuasions. "To those who really hunger and thirst after righteousness; and who long to know what righteousness is: To those who long to be freed from sin itself while they live on earth; and who wish to know what sin is, that they may avoid it: To those who wish to be justified by faith by being made just persons by faith: To those who cannot help trusting that union with Christ must be something real and substantial, and not merely a metaphor, To all these this noble little book will recommend itself; and may God bless the reading of it to them, and to all others no less."--CHARLES KINGSLEY,1854. Lamp Post and the Christian Classics Ethereal Library are proud to present some of the finest Christian literary works of all time-writings that have affected the Church, touched the hearts of its leaders, and helped shape Christianity for two thousand years; timeless books that have endured and are deserving to be included among the Christian Classics.
