On All Hallow’s Eve in 1517, a young monk named Martin Luther posted a letter he hoped would spark an academic debate about the Catholic Church. Instead, somewhat unwittingly, he ignited a revolution that would change the world forever.
Historically, Luther is often painted as a rebel. But in MARTIN LUTHER: Them Man Who Rediscovered Godand Change the World (Viking; October 3, 2017), Metaxas brings to life a much more complicated and fascinating figure. Luther was in fact a vigorous champion of the church and wanted nothing more than for Rome to avoid the fate it eventually succumbed to—the fate that, ironically, he helped bring about.
In MARTIN LUTHER, Metaxas dispels popular myths about the legendary figure, while tracing his life and influences.
MARTIN LUTHER is the story of the man whose monumental faith and courage cracked the edifice of Western Christendom and gave birth to the ideals that lie at the heart of all modern life.
