Martin Luther was one of the most influential men of his day. When he posted a series of theses on the Castle Church door in Wittenberg, Germany, he was merely inviting debate. He set off something much larger. The Protestant Reformation that began with his posting of the Ninety-Five Theses reshaped Europe, redirected Christian history, and recovered the truth of Gods Word. Five hundred years later, what is Luthers 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.

"Among all the servants the Lord has given his church, none has encouraged me more directly, more consistently, and with greater challenge than Martin Luther. He is one of the titanic figures on the world scenea man without whom the history of the world as we know it could not be told. He has been for me an example of Christian faithfulness and courage in the face of trial, of steadfastness in the truth, and of a Christian man in full. Luther was a passionate follower of the Lord Jesus Christ, a happy husband and an eager father, a man whose pastors heart should humble us all, and a man who was ready to stand, at risk of his life, on the word of God and not be moved. This new book by R.C. Sproul and Stephen Nichols is a wonderful introduction to Luther and to his theology. To know Luther the man is to know Luther the theologian. In this important book, Dr. Sproul and Dr. Nichols help us to meet Luther and to come to our own deeper commitment to the authority of Scripture and the sufficiency of Christ alone."
"A quick glance at the subject and the table of contents (including the impressive array of contributors) is about all that is necessary to commend this book. If you are interested in Luther (and if you are not, you should be), and if you are looking to learn more about him, his life and ministry, the larger Reformation context, and his influence, then add The Legacy of Luther to your required reading list for the five-hundredth anniversary of the Reformation. This is a good time for the evangelical Protestant world to remember what the Reformation was all about. This book will help."
"Five hundred years after Luthers nailing of the Ninety-Five Theses, the message of the Reformation is needed now more than ever. Not only has the culture drifted away from the truth, but it seems that much of the church has gone with it. The Legacy of Luther offers a clear, bold, and much-needed call to a new Reformation. May God use it to bring renewal to both the church and the world."
"Martin Luther was very insistent that the Reformation was not his work nor the work of any man but a great work of God brought about by His powerful Word. Thus, Luther wouldnt have wanted us to celebrate him and his work but for us to share his biblical convictions and his commitment to Word ministry, so that God can accomplish His work today just as he did five hundred years ago. For this reason, The Legacy of Luther is a much-needed book. It helps us learn more about this great servant of God, but even more importantly, it reminds us of the biblical foundation of Luthers work. And most importantly, this book challenges us not just to be admirers of Luther but to follow in his footsteps. Surely, this is the great need of Luthers Germany today as it is a need of the church in all places at all times until Christ returns."
