Can the kindle edition be nailed to a door somewhere or does that void the warranty?

I'm an American, not in or from the Midwest, and I know a bit about Martin Luther. Like, how he's not Martin Luther King jr, and how he was a huge anti-semite who literally wrote THE book on Jew hating that was still popular around the time the Germans decided to start industrial scale murdering them. I wonder if that's in the book.
Buy it and let us know....

I am not a Lutheran but I know enough of history to know this man did as much or more to advance the cause of Christianity than anyone in the Protestant Reformation movement.

I have the book, and did grow up Lutheran. Martin Luther is/was the one that nailed the 95 Thesis to the church doors.
He basically told the 'powers that be' that many things they were doing were not in line with the Bible, and was hugely important to starting the Protestant Reformation. His stance was to rely on 'sola scriptura' (only scripture) as opposed to scripture plus whatever else the pope says.
He was also immensely responsible for translating the original bible into Germanic language so the everyday man could read the Bible, instead of waiting to hear the priest read what they wanted to.
As someone mentioned earlier, much later in his life, he really had a problem with Jewish people, but I'm pretty sure he never mentioned to kill them all.
As a funny side note, the woman he married was really a bad woman, and he didn't like her, but he was quoted as saying that he did it to spite the devil. I'm sure that won him some serious points with her!!!

I want to say thank you, as you are certainly aiming to be helpful, and that is surely lacking these days. That bring said, there is some clarification and correction needed. First, there is a difference between "only scripture" and scripture alone. Too complicated to explain here, but worth looking into. Secondly, you would be blessed if you just read the wikipedia page on Luther's wife. I don't know who you are confusing her for, but I challenge you to find a more respectable woman in all of world history. She makes Mother Theresa look like the devil. If you want a fair look at the history of the church, find the communio sanctorum podcast and see what God has done for and through his people in times past.

Thanks for your reply.

You are correct, and I should edit my statement, his wife was not a 'bad' woman, but I very much understand her to be a bit grouchy and cantankerous. On the flip side, ML also was a cantankerous man, and was rather brash/harsh. So I see them as an old couple that love each other, but seem like a couple of grouches.

I don't know much else about her life, but I'll do some more reading. Thanks for the suggestion.
