Product Description

"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.

    Fun book to read on Martin Luther. Worth the extra couple of bucks as this newer version has better font type compared to the older version and seems like a brand new book just written by the author. Very Nice.

    Excellent book adds to your church history collection

    I am enjoying reading this book even though the author writes at a level not everyone will appreciate. He uses term from the Roman Catholic faith without explaining them. It's written at college level, so be warned. It should be read in conjunction with the book, "Christless Christianity," to understand how the Evangelical church today needs a reformation of the gospel, the same as in Martin Luther's times.

    "Here I Stand" is an excellent historical book of faith, courage, suffering, torment, fortitude, perseverance, hope, conviction, loyalty & love. It's difficult to read Luther without getting one's soul & mind stirred up to stand on the Word of God & persevere; to stand up for what is right & true, to persevere through suffering and oppression and not give up. The work he did, the influence he had was and still is immeasurable. We have much to learn from Luther, not only in his public life but his personal life as well. This is an outstanding book & I'd highly recommend it to everyone, and especially to young men & women because we don't see this kind of courage & integrity in our world today.

    This work chronicles the life of Martin Luther and is good reading for those who love to study the Protestant Reformation. I found it to be historically accurate as well.
