If we call ourselves Bible believing Christians today then we owe so much to the reformers of the 16th Century. But how much do we really know about the man who started the reformation? In this new biography of Martin Luther, written especially for the anniversary of the Reformation, Andy Johnston paints a picture of a young and pious Luther growing up in a dark and spiritually desolate Europe. He describes the chain of events that led up to Luther s dramatic decision to challenge the authority of the Pope and helps us to see how God used this very ordinary man to change the course of history. Today Europe is a similarly spiritually dark place, and the centrality of the Bible is challenged from inside the church as well as outside. There is no better time to learn from Luther s passion and commitment to truth. This biography is a great introduction to Luther s life that will challenge and inspire us to uphold biblical truth today.
