In this week’s installment from Off the Record with Martin Luther, Luther explains the labor of love that is writing:
“6438. On Jun 10, 1545, Doctor Martin Luther wrote a thesis for a doctoral disputation, and was extremely exhausted. It was late when he finally rested and he said: I have had more than enough to do today, would like to have done much more and written two books, one in Latin, and one in German. I am weak. Come, Lord, and set me free! Those who know nothing about writing think there is no work to it. Only three fingers are used, but the entire body is worn out. It is a noble work, worthy of praise, for those who do it correctly.” (p. 171).
