Overview

Using primarily non-Catholic sources, O’Hare details assiduously the historic facts about Luther, his teachings, and the ever-splintering, disunited Protestant world he fathered. The real Luther is exposed through his writings, sermons, and letters, along with the testimony of his pupils, close friends, contemporaries, and Protestant biographers. Most of the common beliefs about Luther are blown away, revealed convincingly as myths made of the sands of romanticism and propaganda.

“We will then write about Luther, not against him,” says O’Hare. "We will quote his own words. If the result is not favorable to him, the fault will not be ours.”

“My word,” said Luther, “is the word of Christ; my mouth is the mouth of Christ.” It is one of history’s great ironies that “the mouth of Christ” stands condemned by his own words.

O’Hare states: “We have no intention to wound the convictions and sensibilities of any in the community who may disagree with us. Our aim is to tell the truth about the standard-bearer of the Reformation, and of this no one should be afraid, for truth and virtue triumph by their own inherent beauty and power.”

[NOTE: This is not simply a scan of an old book, like the other currently available Nook e-book version of "The Facts about Luther". This is a fully 'Nookized' publication. The layout of the text has been reformatted for increased readability with the use of block quotations. Links to a wide array of online resources related to the subject of Luther and the many sources cited in the book are also included.]
