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.

I think I probably read this book first 35 years ago, I have read it once more since then, I should probably read it again. It shows his battle for conversion and his fight with the established church, leading to the reformation. The best bit is when he marries a nun. It is the sort of book you can reread every ten years. I would highly recommend this book.

I enjoy, Christian biographies, they tell us that we are not alone, in our struggles, against our current culture.

I felt that this bio engauge to much in the theology and not enough in a narrative of action. Luther lead a dangerous and exciting life both mentally and consequently physically. I never sensed the danger in this book, and the theology could be over bearing and cumbersome. A better bio is by J.H. Merle D'Aubigne--The life and Times of Martin Luther. There you hear more of the debates from the participants' mouths and follow more closely Luther's journey--it is exciting--as it should be.

I am reviewing the 1950, Mentor Books Fifteenth Printing.
This book is well laid out. Much of the material is in lecture form. There are twenty-two content headings, 12 page Bibliography, References, Source of Illustrations, and comprehensive Index. The illustrations are just that monochrome sketches.
Roland H. Bainton received an A.B. degree from Whitman College, and B.D. and Ph.D. degrees form Yale University and form Oberlin College, Dr. Theological Seminary and from Oberlin College. He is a Specialist in Reformation history.

There are many biography and reference books on Martin Luther, each with its own strength s and weaknesses. This one by Roland H. Bainton is pretty comprehensive and goes into more depth than most. Do not get out your highlighter or you will highlight every page.

This is the story of a religious leader who is well known for leading the Protestant Reformation. "I cannot...I will not...Recant! Here I Stand."

This is the best account I have ever read of Martin Luther I have ever read. Not only is it extremely informative covering all aspects of Luther's life, it is a very enjoyable read.

This book clearly and concisely tells about the Reformation and Luther. Sometimes a bit confusing, but generally easy to read.
