To read Luther by Metaxas is to be simultaneously educated, enlightened, and entertained. So much to appreciate: dispelling the myths; recognizing the genius while refusing to shadow the faults; keeping Luther’s driving force (the just shall live by faith in the merits of Christ’s work) in the forefront while explaining the wider implications for Christendom and history. And Metaxas delivers all this and more in a captivating and witty prose. This is my best read in 2017. I have already have given away one copy. I suspect more will follow.

Mr. Metaxes hits a Grand Slam Homerun! His research, writing, and presentation all award winning in my book. I loved reading (listening) to this book. The irony is I spent five years in residence at Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne, Indiana and learned more about the Reformation from Mr. Metaxes in 22 hours of listening (reading) than I did at seminary. I rejoice that learning is unending. I will recommend this book to everyone I know. Thank you again Mr. Metaxes for writing and recording the book.

Loved this book! wry humour made me laugh outloud! More importantly, it told the story well including the good and the bad.
Learning the origins and consequences of the changes Luther started and how he felt about it is highly valuable, regardless of what one may think about him. The author & reader managed to make compelling and easy to follow. A must-have for all history enthusiasts, christian or not.
