Luther recommended book burning--his own

There's nothing like the political season to enjoy some good name calling and personal smears. No one mastered this like Martin Luther, who struggled with the Roman church whose defenders thought he'd gone too far in his reforms, and the other Reformers who thought he hadn't gone far enough. Coxcombs and blockheads, he called them. Today at my other blog, I write about his suggestion that his own books be burned because he'd learned so much from his critics.
