Dr. Luther is Dr. Luther and carries the Argument extremely well
I have found Dr. Luther to be one of my favorite writers as he tends to be blunt Though many of today's Pastors would find Luther to be bombastic, I find him refreshing! As one who was leaning toward law, Bondage of the Will is written in a legal brief style that is to say it is not brief, and upon listening to all of it I give it 4 stars losing one for redundancy. That said those of us who are Reformed in our Understanding of the Bible support Dr. Luther's side verbatim

Why did they use a female voice for this book?
I just don't understand it. This is a book written by a man. A man with a particularly masculine style in his writings. Why on earth did they choose a female voice to narrate this book? It is distracting in its oddity, to hear the rather well-known words of a rather well-known man in a female voice. This was a highly regrettable decision by the creators of this audiobook.

Breathtaking Luther, but
This recording is of a masterpiece by Luther and I think it rightfully regarded as one of the foremost texts in Reformation history. The book covers in great detail a rebuttal of Erasmus on Free Will, and in so doing explains the reasons that Luther determined that there is no free will, but only a bound will.

I regret however that in this rare case the recording was not easy to listen to. The hardest part of listening to this work was the female narration which did not suit what is a text from Luther which overflows with his own personality and masculine style which ill fits a female narrator. I would purchase another copy just to have it read by a man.
