Overview

Few figures in history have defined their time as dramatically as Martin Luther. In this occasionally irreverent--but always humane--biography, Richard Marius provides a full portrait of Luther: his inner compulsions, his struggle with himself and his God, the gestation of his theology, his relations with contemporaries, and his responses to opponents. Focusing in particular on the productive years 1516-1525, Marius' detailed account of Luther's writings yields a rich picture of the development of Luther's thought on the great questions that came to define the Reformation.
