Product description

Review

A useful new book. (Scott Hendrix, The Daily Telegraph)

This is a great addition to OUP's 'Very Short Introductions' series of books, which manages to pack a huge amount of fascinating and useful material into just over a hundred small pages. ... The author is clearly aware of a vast amount of scholarly discussion and secondary literature on Luther and has an enviable ability to summarise and critique it in short compass, and he does a good job of helping us appreciate the historical distance between us and Luther. (Lee Gatiss, Churchman)

About the Author

Scott H. Hendrix is Professor Emeritus of Reformation History at Princeton Theological Seminary. He currently chairs the Continuation Committee of the International Congress for Luther Research. His publications include Luther and the Papacy: Stages in A Reformation Conflict (1981), Tradition and Authority in the Reformation (1996), Preaching the Reformation (2003), and Luther (2009).

Brief and to the point but a useful read before embarking on a Luther essay.

You need to have either perfect eyesight for this book or a strong magnifying glass. The content is interesting when you can see it but the print is ridiculously tiny.
