Martin Luther’s Controversial and Visionary Life Revealed

A historic and comprehensive biography of early Christianity’s most influential leader of the Protestant Reformation, Martin Luther. Controversial and visionary, Luther’s life is revealed in this rare presentation of his work as an educator and church leader. From his birth and childhood, to his religious education, and the events leading up to the Protestant Reformation, you will discover the views and experiences that led to his excommunication by the Pope in 1520. Correspondence and accounts shed further light on Luther’s defiant translation of the Bible from Hebrew and Greek to German. People could now read the Bible in their own language instead of only hearing it in Latin.

This unique biography is reproduced from an 1850 American Sunday School Union original, and in it you will be introduced to the pivotal life of this enigmatic man before, during, and after one of Christianity’s defining events. Chronologically arranged with chapters devoted to important events such as the Diet of Worms, this biography focuses upon his youth and life's story; this is also the first English version to integrate Luther’s letters and correspondence. Case bound in a small 5x8 compact size, the retained original typeset and spackled page edges provide a vintage feel.
