Excerpt


"I cannot.. I will not... recant! Here I stand." This authoritative and inspiring story paints a vivid portrait of the crusader who spearheaded the Reformation. Considered one of the most readable biographies of Martin Luther, this volume is an illustrated look at the German religious reformer and his influence on Western civilization.

Martin Luther entered a monastery as a youth and as a man shattered the structure of the medieval church. Luther spoke out against the corrupt religious practices that then existed. His demand that the authority for doctrine and practice be Scriptures, rather than Popes or Councils, echoed around the world and ignited the Great Reformation. Accused of heresy and threatened with excommunication and death, Luther maintained his bold stand and refused to recant. In his crusade to eliminate religious abuses, he did more than any other man to establish the Protestant faith. With sound historical scholarship and penetrating insight, Roland Bainton examines Luther's widespread influence. He re-creates the spiritual setting of the sixteenth century, showing Luther's place within it and influence upon it. Richly illustrated with more than 100 woodcuts and engravings from Luther's own time, Here I Stand dramatically brings to life Martin Luther, the great reformer.

Excerpt


The reformer, Martin Luther, was a powerful, influential man whose personal quest for peace with God launched widespread change in the church and laid a new foundation for society. As a young monk, Luther searched the Scriptures to ease his anxieties about sin and salvation. He became convinced that the Roman Catholic Church had lost sight of its central themes. Luther challenged the church by posting his Ninety-five Theses on the door of the Wittenberg Church, an act that guaranteed attention. Rome responded quickly, demanding Luther to retract his remarks and eventually declaring him an outlaw. Despite its best efforts, the hierarchy of the church could not suppress Martin Luther. These dramatic events of his life sparked discontent that had been smoldering for centuries. Luther's writings were widely read and accepted as the Renaissance ended and the Reformation began. His words continue to influence the church today as Christians rely on the truth of God's Word. Recommended for ages 6 and up.

"And though this world, with devils filled, should threaten to undo us, we will not fear, for God has willed, his truth to triumph through us. (from A Mighty Fortress is Our God) Across the centuries, these words from the pen of Martin Luther testify mightily of the courage and faith of their author. God's grace transformed him from a fearful monk in anguish about his soul's salvation into a giant of the Faith who shook Europe by declaring boldly once again the words of the apostle Paul: "The just shall live by faith." Luther's story was never better told than by Swiss historian Jean Henri Merle d'Aubigne. The liveliness of Merle's style, his extensive and remarkable use of original quotations, and the rich biographical color of his work make it enjoyable to read. More than that, Merle's evangelical fervor, his fundamental sympathy with the spirit of the Reformation strike a responsive chord in the heart of the Christian.
