Format: Paperback
I have read this book twice, and each time have learned so much about Martin Luther, the leader of the Protestant Reformation and man of great faith. Luther tells the story of the Ninety-Five Theses and Luther's appearance before the Diet of Worms more like it is a novel and not a biography. The biography is filled with the great words of this great man. "I cannot...I will not recant...Here I Stand. I can do no more. God save me!"

This book is very informative and an absolute joy to read. The author has left no stone unturned and does not try to fill pages with babble. However, i did find that "best bits" where within the first quarter of the book. After this Martin Luther has already done the diet of worms and stood his ground against his most vicious opposers. The rest is where Martin went from there. But don't let that put you off. This is, after all, a biography of the man, not just his famous debate.

I found an old copy of this among my sister's college books. I suspected that I would read a chapter and then toss it aside, but found myself thoroughly engrossed in the world of Martin Luther and the Reformation.
This book is really more of an essay than a critical history. Still, it is a wonderful introduction to an important chapter in Western history.
