Publisher's Summary

Martin Luther is famous for the moment he nailed his 95 Theses to the church door in Wittenberg, yet the scope of his influence on the modern world is hardly limited to that one act. He emerged as a leader of the Reformation, coming onto the European scene at a time when modes of thought were changing, adapting from the medieval norm of reliance on authoritative sources such as Aristotle to modern ideas of discovering knowledge through textual interpretation, experience, and experimentation.

Inside you will hear about....

  • From law student to monk 
  • The angry monk 
  • 95 Theses 
  • Debater, reformer, and heretic 
  • Knight George 
  • Defining the Lutheran Church 
  • And much more!
     

As his life followed a tumultuous path from student to monk to reformer and church leader, his emphasis on salvation by faith and the authority of the Bible alone - not priests or the Pope - had lasting impact on the history of the church. While Martin Luther may remain a controversial figure, his life and writings undoubtedly played an important role in the religious, intellectual, and political development of the Western world.

This was a very powerful book that explained the life of Martin Luther in detail. I always wanted to know more about him and his life, this book was perfect.

Narration to hasty

I wish the narration was not so hasty, fast but more relaxed. I feel tension coming out of it. It stresses me out which decreases the positiveness of the experience.
