Martin Luther: Visionary Reformer

Martin Luther: Visionary Reformer
Martin Luther was a man of his time: a highly educated scholar and teacher and a gifted yet flawed human being driven by an optimistic yet ultimately unrealized vision of "true religion." By setting Luther in context, he is seen to be engaged at high levels in the Church and in family life, responding to the myriad unforeseen challenges that his epoch-changing insights had brought down on him.

This biography of the sixteenth-century German friar whose public conflict with the medieval Roman Church triggered the Protestant Reformation, offers a bold, insightful account of the life of Martin Luther. It provides a new perspective on one of the most important religious figures in history, focusing on Luther's entire life, his personal relationships and political motivations, rather than on his theology alone. Relying on the latest research and quoting extensively from Luther's correspondence, Hendrix paints a richly detailed portrait of an extraordinary man who, while devout and courageous, had a dark side as well. No recent biography in English explores as fully the life and work of Martin Luther long before and far beyond the controversial posting of his 95 Theses in 1517, an event that will soon be celebrated as the 500th anniversary of the Reformation.
