Published by Concordia and Fortress Press between 1955 and 1986, Luther's Works: The American Edition is a fifty-five volume compilation of a selection representing only about a third of Luther's works in the Latin and German of the standard Weimar Edition, not including the German Bible.
In this volume, Luther offers interpretations of three Old Testament texts that are often poorly translated and misinterpreted. He gives fresh interpretations of Ecclesiastes and the Song of Solomon, calling upon readers to view them as "Solomon's Economics" and "Solomon's Politics." He then offers the reader a line- by-line commentary on 1 Samuel 23:1-7 as an example of simple, clear interpretation that keeps as its goal "to recognize our dear Lord and Savior clearly and distinctly in Scripture."
