In this examination of the central figure in the Protestant Reformation of the 16th century, the author explains Luther's background and helps the reader to understand the process leading up to his rebellion against the late medieval church. This account studies the world of the early reformers as well as their battles and disagreements over the way forward for the new church. Finally, the author offers an assessment of Luther's significance for, and his contribution to, western culture and Christianity.

"Those seeking a brief introduction to Luther's life, the political times in which he lived, or the theological and philosophical milieu in which his own thought developed will be well served by Tomlin's accessible and sympathetic presentation, one in which the human side of Luther is never lost." -- Booklist Online
"Tomlin's writing is readable and informative . . . . For most people, this packed-full, not so little, little book will be just enough for them to feel that they now 'get' Martin Luther." --Church of England Newspaper
Graham Tomlin is Vice-Principal and Tutor in Historical Theology and Evangelism at Wycliffe Hall, Oxford.
