"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.
