'Attractively-written, wise and judicious, with touches of engaging wit. It is now the best introduction to Luther in English.' - Diarmaid MacCulloch, University of Oxford
This important biography portrays Luther, his concerns and his achievements with clarity and verve, and provides a comprehensive introduction for students, general readers and those seeking to understand the roots of the continuing discords in modern Christianity. Self-aware yet violently prejudiced, bigoted yet inspiring, Luther is presented here with unflinching candour and honesty.
