Inhaltsangabe

From number one New York Times best-selling author Eric Metaxas comes a brilliant and inspiring biography of the most influential man in modern history, Martin Luther, in time for the 500th anniversary of the Reformation.

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 95 Theses appeared, Eric Metaxas, acclaimed biographer of the best-selling 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 faith, virtue, and freedom that today lie at the heart of all modern life.

Kritikerstimmen

“A meticulously researched and detailed account of Luther’s life and times... a very human portrait.... Metaxas is a scrupulous chronicler and has an eye for a good story. The result is full, instructive, and pacey.” (The Washington Post)

“Metaxas knows how to tell a story and how to develop characters, and this talent makes his narrative at once gripping and accessible... an excellent glimpse of the whole of Luther’s life.” (The New York Times Book Review, Editors' Choice) 

“Mr. Metaxas has a knack for capturing the heart and mind of his subjects... his conclusions about the 16th-century revolutionary are uniquely Metaxas, a deep and thoughtful writer with much to teach the world.” (The Washington Times)
