 Luther, qui a été un homme d'action, disait qu'il avait tant de choses à faire, qu'il devait consacrer au moins trois heures par jour à la prière, pour y parvenir... En 1517, l'année de l'affichage de ses 95 thèses, il y a tout juste cinq siècles, il fit paraître un traité d'une centaine de pages : Explication de l'Oraison Dominicale, qui fut l'un des premiers à être traduit en français, et qui eut un certain impact populaire. Trois siècles plus tard, un petit-fils d'Oberlin, le pasteur Louis Rauscher (1807-1840) le traduisit à nouveau de l'allemand en français. C'est son texte remanié par Frédéric de Rougemont (1808-1876), d'une étonnante fraîcheur, que nous présentons ici. En 1535, Luther installé à Wittemberg, à présent connu de toute l'Europe, reçut de son barbier, Peter Beskendorf, la singulière demande de lui apprendre à prier. Luther lui répondit par une lettre, naturellement beaucoup plus courte que le traité, mais où là encore il expose le sens du Notre Père, et montre le fruit qui peut en être retiré. Nous donnons en appendice la Simple Manière de prier, dédiée à mon ami, Maître Peter, le barbier. S'agissant des propres paroles de Jésus-Christ sur la prière, il est incontestable que le Notre Père restera jusqu'à la fin des temps le modèle par excellence de la prière chrétienne.

Martin Luther
This edition of the Bondage of the Will was translated by Henry Cole in 1823. "Free will was no academic question to Luther; the whole Gospel of the grace of God, he held, was bound up with it, and stood or fell according to the way one decided it . . . . It is not the part of a true theologian, Luther holds, to be unconcerned, or to pretend to be unconcerned, when the Gospel is in danger . . . . The doctrine of the Bondage of the Will in particular was the corner-stone of the Gospel and the foundation of faith'' (40-41, emphasis added). ''In particular, the denial of free will was to Luther the foundation of the Biblical doctrine of grace, and a hearty endorsement of that denial was the first step for anyone who would understand the Gospel and come to faith in God. The man who has not yet practically and experimentally learned the bondage of his will in sin has not yet comprehended any part of the Gospel" "Justification by faith only is a truth that needs interpretation. The principle of sola fide [by faith alone] is not rightly understood till it is seen as anchored in the broader principle of sola gratia [by grace alone]; . . . for to rely on one's self for faith is not different in principle from relying on one's self for works" The Bible teaches that faith itself is and has to be, a gift of God, by grace, and not of self (Ephesians 2:8). It is safe to deduce that for Luther, any evangelist who advocates free will has not only ''not yet comprehended any part of the Gospel, '' but also that he has not yet preached the Gospel at all; his is a counterfeit gospel.Luther was ordered to recant his teachings on threat of excommunication. Luther thundered, ''Unless I am convinced by Scriptures and plain reason [for Luther, this meant logic], my conscience is captive to the Word of God. I cannot and I will not recant anything. Here I stand, I can do no other!" [From a review in The Trinity Review] Martin Luther (1483-1546) shattered the structure of the Medieval Church by demanding that the authority for doctrine and practice be the Scriptures rather than popes or councils, and ignited the famous Protestant Reformation. The Roman Catholic hierarchy could not refute his logic, so they attempted to have him killed. But he was protected by Frederic. It has been said that more books have been written about Luther than about any other person except Jesus Christ. 164 pages, hard cover
