I was under the impression that an "overview" would at least cover the basics (albeit not in depth). For a Regius Professor of Modern History, Collinson claims to have lectured on the subject for a very long time, which would suggest that he should be able to provide a coherent overview.Was this review helpful?

Sadly, that does not appear to be the case. In an often opinionated style, Collinson jumps from one scene to the next, providing a collection of snapshots without the links.
Whilst his "sniping" at some of the main characters has its amusing moments, and there is a lot of interesting information between the covers, I am not sure whether this book should be recommended for someone seeking either an "introduction" or "overview" of the subject, because unless a general understanding of the events is already present, reading this book is more likely to result in confusion and the simple question: why are we interested in this guy Luther in the first place?
