Luther's Personal Bible FoundWritten by Rev. H.A. Bergsma
Filled with personal notes by the Reformer himself, Martin Luther's Bible was found in a Stuttgard library recently. The Bible is a Latin Bible printed in 1519 in Lyon, France. It appears that Luther used the Bible in the years 1521 to 1523 as preparation for his translation of the New Testament and the Pentateuch in German. A Spanish Catholic theologian working at cataloguing discovered the Book. Unrecognized, it had been in the library since 1784. Three experts on Luther have determined the Bible was in fact Luther's (From REC News Exchange).
