(review by the Very Curtis I. Crenshaw, Th.D.)
This is not so much a biography of Martin Luther as it is a survey of his theology and beliefs. It is less than 200 pages and an easy read. We have such chapters as these:
- Luther as Commentator
- Luther as Preacher
- Luther as Translator
- Luther as Reformer
- Luther and the Authority of Scripture
- Luther and the Revelation of Scripture
- Luther and the Inspiration of Scripture
He deals with such things as the analogy of Scripture, Luther’s idea that the best interpreter of the Bible is the Bible itself.
For a detailed biography of Luther, Roland Bainton is considered one of the best: Roland Bainton, Here I Stand.
