Product Description

Does your knowledge of Martin Luther's writings start and end with the hymn "A Mighty Fortress Is Our God"? As we celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation he put into motion, we discover a Martin Luther who was one of history's most colorful and influential figures. His story is well known, but his powerful writing is often unfamiliar to us.

Stephen Nichols's Beyond the 95 Theses offers readers an illustrated introductory guide to Luther's life, theology, and works, as well as encouragement and guidance for studying Luther's ethical writings, "table talk," hymns, and sermons.

Nichols introduces and summarizes Luther's major writings, such as The Bondage of the Will and On the Councils and the Church, and includes, with annotations, the complete Ninety-Five Theses. Includes a select guide for further reading.

Editorial Reviews

A marvelous mixture of biography, history, theology, and anecdote. If you don’t feel the heartbeat of the Reformation in these pages, check your pulse!
How do you do a book on everything from training children to sing hymns to preaching to political conflict—and have it running over with the glorious gospel? Nichols has done it. Be alert: people forget how life-changing the gospel really is—and then are astonished to remember it again as they read Luther.
Nichols has a gift for making a complex subject simple without being simplistic
“Rarely do we find the rich combination of theological precision and historical passion so accessibly written as we do here in Dr. Nichols’ entertaining treatment of Martin Luther. A marvelous introduction to both Luther himself and The Reformation. If you find yourself wondering why Luther remains relevant half a millennium later, start reading this book.”
As we celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, may we not only appreciate the profound ways God used Martin Luther, but may we learn from him. Dr. Nichols gives us a front-row seat on Luther’s life and, as we watch, may we have the same boldness and the same lifelong commitment to the gospel.

    I know of no other author who can take a subject (or individual) so complex, and break it down in such a way that the everyday individual can understand it. Stephen Nichols is, by far, one of the most important teachers today in matters of reformed theology. In Beyond The 95 Theses, Nichols has presented a tremendous amount of detail on the importance of the life and works of Martin Luther in a style that is riveting and manages to reignite the reader's passion for the gospel. Nichols invites the reader to engage with some of Luther's hymns and writings, not the least of which are the theses Luther is most known for. Nichols provides an understandable guide through the 95 theses, and also helps the reader to understand some of Luther's theology.

    As we embark on this, the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation, let us Christians not forget those that came before us and paved the way for us to be able to engage with the Word of God in a way that changes lives forever for the Kingdom of God!

    I received an electronic copy of this book free from P&R Publishing through NetGalley. The opinions I have expressed are my own, and I was not required to write a positive review.
