Praise for Martin Luther

Posted: August 29, 2013 by doulos tou Theou in Christianity, The Christian Life

“In my opinion Charles Wesley is the finest English hymn-writer, Thomas Cranmer the best liturgist, William Tyndale the most perceptive Bible translator, Hugh Latimer the finest preacher, and the Westminster divines the ablest catechists. Imagine all of these gifted people gathered up into one individual.

What it took a dozen Englishmen two hundred years to do Martin Luther did in twenty.”

– Victor Shepherd, Witnesses to the Word: Fifty Profiles of Faithful Servants (Clements, 2001), 33
