Here I Stand - A Life Of Martin Lutherby Roland Bainton
This early work on Martin Luther is both expensive and hard to find in its first edition. It details the life of the monk responsible for translating the Bible from Latin into German and for inspiring the Lutheran movement. This is a fascinating work and is thoroughly recommended for anyone interested in the history of European religion. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.

Bainton's biography of Luther should be on every Christian bookshelf. It gives a thorough but readable account of Luther's life and his role in the Reformation, as well as his impact on history. Even if you are not a Christian, if history interests you this book will be to your liking.
Veritas Press has highly recommended Roland Bainton's thrilling treatise on the life of Martin Luther, saying, "This book is considered the most readable biography on Luther in English. A vivid portrait of the man who, because of his unshakable faith in God, helped to bring about the Protestant Reformation." I read the book in college (over thirty years ago) to prepare for writing a paper on the works of Martin Luther. One does not have to agree with all of the theological conclusions reached by Luther to admire his willingness to stand up for his convictions and to appreciate his part in helping to pave the road to religious freedom. This is a powerful book that left a great impression on me.
This is a great book, very well written with an emphasis on Luther's life as well as the historical background of the period. It was written in the late 1800's, however it has enough relevance for even today.
