Description

Martin Luther started a reformation movement that revolutionized Europe in the sixteenth century. His far-reaching reforms of theological understanding and church practices radically modified both church and society in Europe and beyond. Paulson's introduction to Luther's thought, coupled with the illustrations, provides an engaging introduction to Luther's multifaceted self and the ideas that catapulted him to fame. Written by experts but designed for the nonexpert, the Armchair series provides accurate, concise, and witty overviews of some of the most profound Christian theologians in history. This series is an essential supplement for first-time encounters with primary texts, a lucid refresher for scholars and clergy, and an enjoyable read for the theologically curious. STEVEN PAULSON is Associate Professor of Systematic Theology, Luther Seminary, St. Paul, Minnesota.

This is a most excellent book....
This is a most excellent book. It is read very well by a British English speaker who only stumbles over a few words (Sanhedrin and Melanchthon). It is very listenable, well punctuated. What a wonderful presentation of Luther's teachings.

This is the second audio book on this site that I enjoyed very much. I was not aware of the depth of Luthers' understanding and contribution to faith in Jesus Christ.

Narrator Simon Vance delivers a clear and distinct narration of this book on the teachings of Martin Luther. This is part of a series of books on the theology of preachers of past centuries, including Calvin, Wesley, and Augustine. While the book at times seems pretty deep, Vance’s clear diction and reading style make it easier to digest. Luther’s core beliefs center on law versus grace, or faith versus works. Luther was faithful to the scripture and unafraid to stand for what he believed in. This thought-provoking audiobook is great for anyone interested in exploring the teachings of Martin Luther and the period of the Reformation. N.L. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine
