Melanchthon's Lectures on Romans & Corinthians greatly stirred Luther who thought they should be published for everyone to read.

If you do not please yourself, very good; it is enough that you please me. The sin is on your side, if there be any sin here. Why did not you yourself publish? Why did you suffer me to ask, command, and urge you so often to publish? This is my defense against you: I am willing to be, and to be called, a thief, fearing neither your complaint [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
