Baker & Taylor
A minister, historian, and scholar reassesses the life and times of Martin Luther, describing his seminal role in the Reformation, his religious beliefs and fresh interpretation of the human relationship with God, his conflict with Church leaders, and his lasting influence on world history and religion. 25,000 first printing.

Blackwell North Amer
Martin Luther explores the records left by Luther of his inner struggles and his conflicts with the papacy, the Holy Roman Empire, leaders of the emergent Protestant movements, and, in the greatest stains on his reputation, peasants in their uprising and Jews. This is also a portrait of a man of conscience and courage who risked death to witness to his beliefs and whose arguments drew fellow believers who together created changes that altered the destiny of Christendom, the shape of Christianity, and the rise of new freedoms in church and state.

A compact and delicate book, it is suitable for those busy readers who have not much time to dig into Martin Luther's life story, which happened centuries ago. To some extent, however, the tone and style of the book are somewhat academic, with frequent usage of formal and uncommon words, due partly to the status of the author's professorship. It might be also better if the author could have structured the book in a more refined manner so that the reader may be able to trace more easily the key points of Luther's life story. LLW
