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.

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.

How do you do a book on everything from training children to sing hymns to preaching to political conflictand have it running over with the glorious gospel? Nichols has done it. Be alert: people forget how life-changing the gospel really isand 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 Luthers life and, as we watch, may we have the same boldness and the same lifelong commitment to the gospel.
Terry5 Stars Out Of 5Superb! A Robust Topic Made AccessibleFebruary 20, 2017TerryQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I 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!
