Product Description

The suspects are usual and well known: Calvin, Muntzer, Zwingli, Bucer. But above all Reformation figures, if not for his sheer intellectual abilities, leadership, and the like, sits Luther; if not for his founding of the Reformation--for his courage, his determination, his unquenchable passion for God.

Indeed, Luther is the towering figure of the Reformation. His actions have had an incalculable effect on the life of quite literally--billions--of people. In Luther and His World Graham Tomlin paints a vivid picture of Luther's life, from his early struggles with his faith to his emergence as the leading figure in the Reformation. The man revealed here is so very human: obstinate, sensitive, blunt , determined, married--and willing to risk all for his convictions.

Publisher's Description

In this vivid account of the Reformation, readers learn about the process that led up to Luther's rebellion against the late medieval church and understand what drove him

Graham Tomlin brings the world of the early reformers to life as he explores their battles and disagreements and investigates their fight over what they considered to be correct doctrine, and the future of the early Church. The result is a truly illuminating account of Martin Luther—the central figure in the Protestant Reformation of the 16th century—that examines his background and the circumstances that led to his rebellion against the church. It delivers a rich analysis of his significance for and contribution to Western culture and Christianity.

Author Bio

Graham Tomlin is the author of many books, including The Power of the CrossThe Provocative Church, and Spiritual Fitness.

Editorial Reviews

"Tomlin's writing is readable and informative . . . . For most people, this packed-full, not so little, little book will be just enough for them to feel that they now 'get' Martin Luther."  —Church of England Newspaper

"Those seeking a brief introduction to Luther’s life, the political times in which he lived, or the theological and philosophical milieu in which his own thought developed will be well served by Tomlin’s accessible and sympathetic presentation, one in which the human side of Luther is never lost." — Booklist Online
