About the Author:

LAND H. BAINTON (1894-1984), a specialist in Reformation history, was for forty-two years Titus Street Professor of Ecclesiastical History at Yale, and he continued writing well into his twenty years of retirement. He wore his scholarship lightly and had a lively, readable style. His most popular book, Here I Stand, sold more than a million copies.

Review:

''Easily the most readable Luther biography in English.'' --Time

''Of the many superlative treatments, a half-century-old study by Roland Bainton, Here I Stand: A Life of Martin Luther, has justly won a reputation as a classic work on a classic subject.'' --Mark Noll, author and historian

''A sound and well-rounded picture of the man and of his role in history.'' --Chicago Tribune
