Two among you recommended Luther by Oberman and Overtreated: Why Too Much Medicine Is Making Us Sicker and Poorer for my further education and I wanted to thank you, I wish my brain cell could remember who you are.

Luther is hott. Maybe hotter than health care.

Discovering Luther the man demands more than scholarship can ever expect to offer. We must be prepared to leave behind our own view of life and the world: to cross centuries of confessional and intellectual conflict in order to become his contemporary. When the Church was still equated with Heaven, and the Emperor represented the might of the world, a monk named Luther rose up against these powers of Heaven and Earth: he stood alone with only God and his omnipresent adversary, the Devil.

Surprisingly, the discoveries and experiences of a life marked by battle raging within and without make him a contemporary of our time, which has learned to sublimate the Devil and marginalize God.


We shall see. Bwahahahahaha.
