About the Book
The Reformation of the sixteenth century was a vast and complicated movement. It involved kings and peasants, cardinals and country priests, monks and merchants. It spread from one end of Europe to the other and manifested itself in widely differing forms. Yet in spite of its diverse and complex character, to begin to understand the Reformation you need to know only one name: Martin Luther.

Since it first was published more than 50 years ago, Roland H. Bainton's Here I Stand: A Life of Martin Luther has sold millions of copies. It remains the definitive introduction to the great Reformer and is essential reading for anyone seeking to understand this towering historical figure.
