Engaging and authoritative biography of the first of the Reformers, Martin Luther. Even more than a biography, the author traces the evolution of Luther's theology as he moved from being a faithfully conforming monk, to being a loyal reformer, to being an opponent of the Roman Catholic Church. Kittleson covers the major writings and major events, placing them in historical context, as he seeks to more fully explain Luther's convictions and personality. His single-volume biography has become a standard resource for those who wish to delve into the depths of the Reformer without drowning in a sea of scholarly concerns. Kittleson is well-known as a Luther scholar and is currently professor of Church History at Luther Seminary.
