Martin Luther was one of the most influential men of his day. The movement that began with his posting of the Ninety-Five Theses reshaped Europe, redirected Christian history, and recovered the truth of God's Word. Five hundred years later, what is Luther's legacy? In this volume, Drs. R.C. Sproul, Stephen J. Nichols, and thirteen other scholars and pastors examine his life, teaching, and enduring influence. Meet Martin Luther, the audacious Reformer who, out of love for the truth and the desire to bring it to light, set the world ablaze.

This book is a collection of essays, written by some of todays top Reformedtheologians and pastors, on different aspects of Luthers life and theology, including the legacy he left behind.
This is a must read for anyone interested in Luther, the Reformation, church history, or Christian theology. The organization allows for easytransition from topic to topic, and since each essay has a different author, each has its own style, keeping the narrative fresh and interesting.
Much more than a biography, The Legacy of Luther lays out the thoughts and teachings of Luther on the doctrine of justification. The reader will learn what Luther most wanted to teach: the authority of Scripture alone, and justification by faith alone.
The book also features a timeline of major events in Luthers life, and appendix of Luthers Ninety-Five Theses, footnotes for ease of reference, a list of resources for further reading, a Forward by John MacArthur, and a Scripture Index.
I cannot recommend this book enough. Ive marked several pages that I want to revisit, and Im sure I will return to this book again and again for inspiration and learning.
I received a complimentary electronic copy of this book fromReformation Trust in return for an honest review. However, I must admit that I also ended up purchasing the book, and read my hardcover copy in instead of the pdf.
