Must Read Short Biography on Martin Luther October 31, 2017

To celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, can I recommend the following book by Volker Leppin and translated into English by Ridley College’s Rhys Bezzant and Karen Roe:

This brief, insightful biography of Martin Luther strips away the myths surrounding the Reformer to offer a more nuanced account of his life and ministry. Coinciding with the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, this accessible yet robustly historical and theological work highlights the medieval background of Luther’s life in contrast to contemporary legends. Internationally respected church historian Volker Leppin explores the Catholic roots of Lutheran thought and locates Luther’s life in the unfolding history of 16th-century Europe. Foreword by Timothy J. Wengert.
