Martin Luther: Renegade and Prophet
About The Book
In this first historical biography for decades, Lyndal Roper gives us a flesh-and-blood figure, warts and all. She reveals the often contradictory psychological forces that drove Martin Luther forward, and the dynamics they unleashed which turned a small act of protest into a battle against the power of the Church.
