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.
