Summary
Examining the inner life of Martin Luther, the founding leader of the Reformation, the author reveals a literary genius who was full of contradictions and whose Ninety-Five Theses began the greatest upheaval and transformation of Christianity in history
Summary
In Martin Luther, Oxford University historian Lyndal Roper provides a detailed biography of the great Reformation. Presenting well-known history in a fresh and engaging manner, Roper relates Luther's family background, depicts key friendships, and discusses important influences on his theological evolution. Candidly and with restraint, she examines his uncompromising stances on such significant matters as his rejection of humanism and his anti-Semitic proclamations. Both scholars and general readers will appreciate the this balanced and insightful portrait. -- Description by Katherine Bradley Johnson
