"...a majestic work, finely written and translated. It is rich in detail, has handsome illustrations, and vividly captures the spirit and passion of the Wittenberg reformer....Anyone interested in the full picture of Luther's life and work will enjoy reading this book.
Donald K. McKim, Reformed Review
"Brecht's is a bold undertaking and a successful one, given the enormity of his task. He thus provides a sure guide into Luther's life and work....The book will serve those who wish to continue their study of Luther and in so doing to confront the sources themselves."
