Written in the 1840’s, this book was long recognized as the finest biography of Martin Luther available.
As well as containing remarkable insights into the man, Martin Luther, this volume also presents a survey of the ecclesiastical, political, and social events leading up to the Reformation, the atmosphere in which it took place, and the part played by men like Luther.
The Life and Times of Martin Luther is a masterly portrayal of the motives, beliefs, and actions of one of the men God used to break the chains of Rome in the sixteenth century. His words and life still speak to us today.

If you watched the movie 'Luther' , you will love the book. Imagine stumbling upon the barely used Bible in the library, the book that had been copied laboriously by deligent scholars, and 'hidden' in plain sight. Well I stumbled upon this book about Luther in the modern church library, and thank God, it was well thumbed, apparently in demand. There was much in it that was new to me, despite the fact that I had been brought up in the Lutheran branch of Christianity. What impressed me the most in this biography is the author's reverence for and understanding of the internal turmoil that Luther must have experienced in making the transition from loyal Roman Catholic priest to the reluctant critic and angry reformer. D'Aubigne makes it come alive, that period of almost five hundred years ago, when the printing press and German nationalism combined with a fervent young priest's personal and scholarly discoveries. If you are interested in the church, and in the difficult and sometimes lonely journey of faith that men take, then this is your book to read. Let's hope it comes back on the market.
