Overview

In this New York Times bestseller, author and biographer Eric Metaxas delves into the life of Martin Luther—a young monk who ignited a religious revolution. Well-researched and engagingly written, this biography tells the true story of the man whose actions, 500 years later, are still ringing true today.

Much of what we know about or associate with Luther is either a myth or an exaggeration of the truth. Martin Luther: The Man Who Rediscovered God and Changed the World seeks to dispel the exaggerations and reveal the still very extradordinary truths about the life of this humble monk from Germany.

Published by Viking Press.

Most books I have read about Martin Luther are more like my high school history classes. Memorizing names and dates were more important than learning what happened. This book is almost the opposite. It does talk about a large number of people and follows Luther's life in a sequential manner, but it covers Luther's life in an interesting and detailed manner. The author differentiates what is anecdotal and myth from what is actually known about Luther and the Reformation. Since the book is about Luther, the Reformation is not covered as well as you would expect. Just enough about the Reformation and its direct impact on Luther's life is covered. I would definitely read any book by this author if he covered the same history from the Reformation standpoint. The first two thirds of the book is very sequential and follows Luther and the Reformation. The last third changes focus by talking about broad subjects due to the Reformation after the Peasants War has expanded things beyond just Luthor but the author is very good and it is easy to follow the change of focus. I learned quite a bit about Luther and the Reformation that I did not know. The biggest surprise I had was the Augsburg diet lasted for months. Today a conference lasts maybe a week, but I did not realize that not only did the Augsburg Confession get read at the diet, but the Catholic response AND the Augsburg Apology was also written and released during the diet. I always assumed the Catholic response and Apology were done months after the diet concluded. I would suggest anyone who has a broad understanding of Luther and the Reformation read this book since I am confident, they will learn things they did not know. This book is a great source of information and worth passing along when you are done reading the book.
