Abingdon Press Here I Stand Life of Martin Luther

On a sultry day in July of the year 1505 a lonely traveler was trudging over a parched road on the outskirts of the Saxon village of Stotternheim. He was a young man, short but sturdy, and wore the dress of a university student. As he approached the village, the sky became overcast. Suddenly there was a shower, then a crashing storm. A bolt of lightning rived the gloom, and knocked the man to the ground. Struggling to rise, he cried in terror, "St. Anne help me! I will become a monk." The man who thus called upon a saint was later to repudiate the cult of the saints. He who vowed to become a monk was later to renounce monasticism. A loyal son of the Catholic Church, he was later to shatter the structure of medieval Cathololicism. A devoted servant of the pope, he was later to identify the popes with Antichrist. For this young man was Martin Luther.

I previously read this book and decided to give the copy I purchased from CBD as a gift. I probably should have purchased a more expensive copy. The paper quality in the book I purchased was not up to par and the text was slightly blurry. Next time I buy from CBD I will be aware that the cheaper copies of books may be inferior in quality. Of course, this is the first time this has occurred and, down through the years, I've purchased a lot of books from your company.

On Reformation Sunday, our pastor referred to this gem. My husband thoroughly enjoys reading/studying this book.

I am a lover of Christian biographies, and this is one of the top of the 20th century. This book is not only an academic jewel, but a book of spiritual insight into the Christian life, as well as the man of Martin Luther. Highly recommend.
