Written by one of the world's greatest authorities on Martin Luther, this is the definitive biography of the central figure of the Protestant Reformation. "A brilliant account of Luther's evolution as a man, a thinker, and a Christian. . . . Every person interested in Christianity should put this on his or her reading list."--Lawrence Cunningham, "Commonweal" "This is "the" biography of Luther for our time by the world's foremost authority."--Steven Ozment, Harvard University "If the world is to gain from Luther it must turn to the real Luther--furious, violent, foul-mouthed, passionately concerned. Him it will find in Oberman's book, a labour of love."--G. R. Elton, "Journal of Ecclesiastical History"
