On All Hallow’s Eve in 1517, a young monk named Martin Luther posted a
document he hoped would spark an academic debate, but that instead
ignited a conflagration that would forever destroy the world he knew.
Five hundred years after Luther’s now famous Ninety-five Theses
appeared, Eric Metaxas, acclaimed biographer of the bestselling Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy
and Amazing Grace: William Wilberforce and the Heroic Campaign to End Slavery
paints a startling portrait of the wild figure whose adamantine faith
cracked the edifice of Western Christendom and dragged medieval Europe
into the future. Written in riveting prose and impeccably researched, Martin Luther
tells the searing tale of a humble man who, by bringing ugly truths to
the highest seats of power, caused the explosion whose sound is still
ringing in our ears. Luther’s monumental faith and courage gave birth to
the ideals of liberty, equality, and individualism that today lie at
the heart of all modern life.
