"No Apostle has the right on his own authority to institute a sacrament, that is, to give a divine promise with a sign attached; for this belongs to Christ alone."
Babylonian Captivity was written in 1520 as a point-by-point refutation of the prevailing practices of the Roman Catholic Church. In this treatise, Luther's trademark style is present. This treatise provides the reader an historical window into at the renaissance world, and the stark doctrinal fissures between the reformer's "at large" and the Roman Catholic Church.

This book took me by surprise. I was not expecting to be reading about the Protestant movement. It taught me about why they separated from Catholicism. The book mentions Martin Luther’s actions in finding the church again through a recession. I recommend it if you are curious about the foundation of Evangelical churches today.
