Luther is always good to read . Very comprehensive , you should have an open mind and an open Bible when going through his works . Some knowledge of the history of the Bible and the times when Luther wrote his works would be helpful .
This is an excellent insight into the book of Galations, I highly recommend this as a study tool.
