Overview

Martin Luther: The Man Who Rediscovered God and Changed the World (Signed Book) by Eric Metaxas

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Eric Metaxas comes a brilliant and inspiring biography of the most influential man in modern history, Martin Luther, in time for the 500th anniversary of the Reformation
 
On All Hallow’s Eve in 1517, a young monk named Martin Luther posted a document he hoped would spark an academic debate, but that instead ignited a conflagration that would forever destroy the world he knew. Five hundred years after Luther’s now famous 95 Theses appeared, Eric Metaxas, acclaimed biographer of the bestselling Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy and Amazing Grace: William Wilberforce and the Heroic Campaign to End Slavery, paints a startling portrait of the wild figure whose adamantine faith cracked the edifice of Western Christendom and dragged medieval Europe into the future. Written in riveting prose and impeccably researched, Martin Luther tells the searing tale of a humble man who, by bringing ugly truths to the highest seats of power, caused the explosion whose sound is still ringing in our ears. Luther’s monumental faith and courage gave birth to the ideals of faith, virtue, and freedom that today lie at the heart of all modern life.

I learned a lot about Martin Luther and a lot of new words which the nook dictionary didn’t know either. Very well done.

Thanks to Eric for this wonderful book on the great reformer Martin Luther! With no previously well formed ideas about his life and the impact of his of his life I was amazed again and again at his commitment to Bible truth regardless of what could be a very negative outcome. Also, thanks for reminding us that even people used by God in great ways are still people who can at times fail to live out the truths they preach and teach.

I'd heard the term "Reformation" but honestly had no clue about how it came about or Martin Luther's role in it all. Now I know. This book thoroughly covers the man and the dramatic change that his actions and beliefs brought about. I was especially interested in reading this because I had read a previous work by Eric Metaxas "Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy" which is in the top 10 of my all-time favorite non-fiction books. For those with an interest in the subject of not only "The Reformation" but how our personal freedom and freedom of religion comes from it, I recommend this book.
