Publisher's Summary

A look at many different aspects of how Martin Luther became the Father of the Reformation.
"The Accidental Revolutionary": In his quest for spiritual peace, Luther had no idea he'd leave his world in turmoil.

"The Parents Luther Feared Disgracing": Were they caring and firm - or so harsh they drove him to rebel against every authority in his life?

"What Was Luther's World Like?" The boy grew up in exciting, harsh, and violent times.

"The Breakthrough": When, where, and how did Luther make his astounding discovery of justification by faith?

"Dr. Luther's Theology": A young professor's startling insights into the graciousness of God.

"Protestants' Most-Famous Document": What did Luther actually say in the 95 Theses?

"The Decisive Documents of 1520": After Luther published these three works, there was no turning back.

"Luther's World"

"Colorful Sayings of Colorful Luther": A sample of the reformer's wit and wisdom.

"Preaching from the Print Shop": If Luther hadn't used the new printing technology, would there have been a Reformation?

"Profit-Hungry Printers": Luther suffered from them, too.

"The Bible Translation that Rocked the World": Luther's Bible introduced mass media, unified a nation, and set the standard for future translations.

"The Gallery: Luther's Friends and Enemies": Luther made plenty of both.

"The Political Luther": The reformer revolutionized more than people's views on the church.

"Luther's Political Nemesis"

"Luther's Political Allies"

"Fool in Rome": As a young monk, Luther longed to see Rome. But his 1510 trip to the Holy City filled him with pain and doubt.
