To combat abuses in the church of his day, the young German monk drafted nearly one hundred propositions for public debate. Martin Luther posted these "theses" on the church door in Wittenberg, an action that helped to give birth to the Protestant Reformation. Although most people have heard of the Ninety-Five Theses, very few have actually read these propositions. In response, Stephen Nichols has prepared this edition with an illuminating introduction, explanatory notes, and several illustrations to provide readers with access to this Christian classic.

"The Ninety-Five Theses is a text that everyone knows, most refer to, but few actually read, " writes Stephen Nichols. "Nevertheless, it is such a crucial text that it deserves to be read widely." Toward that end, Nichols has prepared this edition with an illuminating introduction, explanatory notes, and several illustrations. "Martin Luther has left a legacy that continues to enrich the church through his writings..., " writes Nichols. "All of this may be traced back to the last day in October 1517 and the nailing of the Ninety-Five Theses to the church door."
