What made an ordinary monk become a catalyst for the Reformation in Europe in the 1500s? What were the reasons lying behind his nailing of 95 theses against the practice of indulgences to the door of the Schlosskirche in Wittenberg in 1517? Why was Martin Luther’s life in danger? How did his apparent kidnapping result in the first ever New Testament translated into the German language? Discover how a fresh understanding of the Scriptures transformed not only his own life but had a huge impact upon Europe.
Wow! I never knew that the story of Martin Luther's life included so many exciting things like disappearing undercover when he was outlawed, living in disguise as a knight in a castle, translating the greek bible into German, & helping some nuns escape a convent by hiding them in barrels. I really enjoyed reading this biography. It's fast paced but the author also weaves in helpfully comments about how Luther grew in his understanding of grace & justification through the stories. So I felt by the end that I understood more about what Luther came to discover in his reading of the Bible.
