Excerpt from Luther as Spiritual Adviser
Leader of the Reformation as an untitled pastor, with all Germany for' his parish, may not only serve to bring out into clearer View the wonderful versatility of the great man, and furnish a needed correction in the prevailing estimate of his char acter, but may also indicate to some a much neglected field of Christian activity in our own age, an age in which temptations are varied in form and multiplied in power, and in which the occupants of pulpit and pew too often plead the pressure of official duties, absolutely triﬂing com pared with those of Luther, as exempting from the primary obligations of Christian brotherhood.
