The Reformation of the sixteenth century was a vast and complicated movement. It involved kings and peasants, cardinals and country priests, monks and merchants. It spread from one end of Europe to the other, and manifested itself in widely differing forms. Yet in spite of its diverse and complex character, to start to understand the Reformation you need know only one name: Martin Luther. Roland Bainton's Here I Stand: A Life of Martin Luther remains the definitive introduction to the great Reformer and is essential reading for anyone seeking to understand this towering historical figure.

Best Luther Biography
4 stars By Wally Bocos, Nov 23 2017
Best book on Luther I have read.
The extensive quotes of Luther give insight to the flawed, but devout servant of God. Bainton adds a sense of pastoral and calling responsibility to his life, and gives the reader a greater affinity with the reformer. This book makes plain; Luther was not an academician neatly tucked away in a corner of his ivory tower. 4.25
