    I recently finished working through this book with a men's group of laymen at the church I pastor. Very readable, and very well written. But more than that, this is a gem when it comes to insight for Christian living. Everything from the monumental (Luther in the Diet of Worms claiming 'Here I stand, I can do no other') to the mundane (Luther expressing his love to 'his rib' Catherine von Bora, whom he would not trade the whole of France for. At one point Luther says, 'There is a lot to get used to in the first year of marriage, One wakes up int he morning and finds a pair of pigtails on the pillow which were not there before.' An awesome book. And, if I might be particular, I like the new edition's cover much better than the goofy portrait on the older edition. My men's group unanimously loved the book.

    I have read this book cover to cover 3 times and refer back to it often. The writing really gives you a sense of Luther the man and places everything in historical perspective.I believe that the author intended to present a historical biography of Luther but to me the book is more than that. Luther is one of my heroes and while I should persue a more detailed volume on the man, Bainton gives the reader just what he needs in an enjoyable readable style.As a side note, reading this book got me started in a bigger quest to study church history in general and the Reformation period in particular. It also gave me a starting point in evaluating modern Lutheran thought and theology which is another subject all together.I highly recommend this book.
