Item Description...
A biography of the German monk, whose protest against some of the doctrines of the Catholic Church led to the Protestant Reformation

Publishers Description

Here is an outstanding modern contribution to religious literature - a vivid portrait of the man who, because of his unshakable faith in his God, helped to bring about the Protestant Reformation.

This is an authoritative, unforgettable biography of Martin Luther, the great religious leader, who entered a monastery as a youth and who, as a man, shattered the structure of the medieval church. Luther spoke out against the corrupt religious practices that then existed. His demand that the authority for doctrine and practice be Scriptures--rather than Popes or Councils--echoed around the world and ignited the Great Reformation. Accused of heresy and threatened with excommunication and death, Luther maintained his bold stand and refused to recant. In his crusade to eliminate religious abuses, he did more than any other man to establish the Protestant faith.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Here I Stand: A Life of Martin Luther  Jan 9, 2007
This is an exceptional book for objective historical and theological perspectives of the life of Martin Luther. I have read the book as part of seminary studies, though the book is written with an undertone for lay understanding. The major pluses of the book are the honest depiction of the character of Martin Luther and how his personal theology developed over his pastoral years with highlights of how his insights helped cause major reforms of theological throughout the world as well as bringing the book of the bible in a readable and understandable format to his beloved German people.
Excellent Book  Nov 9, 2006
The Pastor at my church referred me to this Book. And it was excellent. Very thorough on Luther's life.
A true classic  Aug 21, 2006
Roland Bainton (1894-1984), a distinguished professor of church history at Yale University was a fine literary stylist who wore his learning lightly. Here I Stand has been in print since its publication more than fifty years ago, and it has sold over a million copies.

Bainton was already a thorough student of the Protestant Reformation when he began writing this biography in the 1940s, and his maturity encouraged a sensitive, though not uncritical, interpretation of the great reformer. Especially impressive is Bainton's ability to explain Luther's doctrinal beliefs clearly and sympathetically even though Bainton himself was neither a Lutheran nor an evangelical.

In my opinion, Here I Stand is one of the finest biographies written in the early twentieth century. I read the book first in 1972, and on coming back to it thirty-four years later was even more impressed with its literary and historical worth. It is the epitome of the word "classic."

In passing, the original Abingdon hardback edition is significantly more pleasant to read than modern paperback versions, with their tiny type squeezed right to the margins.
Outstanding and very readable  Jul 19, 2006
This seems to be the authoritative biography of Martin Luther. I had no complaints reading it and enjoyed the learning.
Not bad, but not great  Jul 9, 2006
I was frankly a little disappointed in this book. I was interested in gaining some more knowledge of Luther and his time, and I saw this work was generally well regarded. However the context of the period, and the unfolding struggle between reformation and the counter-reformation take a distant second place to the detailed evolution of Luther's theology. While I can certainly appreciate that theology was a huge part of Luther's life and legacy, it would be nice to see how it all played out in this era.
