Martin Luther

Full Product Description

  • Want a balanced, engaging look at Martin Luther?
  • Written by Catholic Journalist Peter Stanford, this is a truly unique biography
  • You'll be able to cut through conjecture to the mission of the man who transformed Christianity
The 31st of October 2017 marks the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther pinning his 95 'Theses' - or reform proposals - to the door of his local university church in Wittenberg.

Most scholars now agree that the details of this eye-catching gesture are more legend than hammer and nails, but what is certainly true is that on this day (probably in a letter to his local Archbishop in Mainz), the Augustinian Friar and theologian issued an outspokenly blunt challenge to his own Catholic Church to reform itself from within - especially over the sale of 'indulgences' - which ultimately precipitated a huge religious and political upheaval right across Europe and divided mainstream Christianity ever after.

A new, popular biography from journalist Peter Stanford, looking at Martin Luther from within his Catholic context, examining his actual aims for Catholicism as well as his enduring legacy - and where he might fit within the church today.

Martin Luther by Peter Stanford was published by Hodder & Stoughton General Division in October 2017 and is our 6677th best seller. The ISBN for Martin Luther is 9781473621671.
