This NPH Classic book is based on a booklet with the same title originally published in 1983. Author Armin Schuetze emphasizes the impact of Martin Luther’s teachings and sweeping reform on today’s Lutheran church. One of these impacts was to give the Lutheran church an identity by transforming it into a confessional church. Although this book contains biographical material, it is not intended to be a chronological depiction of Luther’s life; rather, biographical information and quotes of Luther are woven throughout the commentary as background material to help show what Luther represented. Schuetze writes a captivating commentary to help readers share in the up-and-down battles of a difficult reform, reaffirm their Lutheran beliefs, and appreciate just what Luther did for the church, past and present.
