Summary
After five hundred years of examining the "father of the Reformation," surely we know all there is to know about Martin Luther - but is that true? Did he nail his famous Ninety-Five Theses to the Wittenberg church door? Did his wife escape her convent in a herring barrel? Did he and his wife have spectators on their wedding night? Did he say, "Here I stand. I cannot do otherwise"? German radio and television journalist Andreas Malessa dives gleefully into the actual history of Luther, rejecting the falsehoods and fallacies surrounding the reformer in favor of the equally incredible facts. Full of humor, irony, and profound respect, this book both entertains and educates about the everyday realities of Luther's Europe - when democracy was heretical, religious wars were fought with leaflets instead of tweets, and dramatic events were memorialized with oil paintings instead of selfies. Find the truth of the man behind the Ninety-Five Theses, and experience his faith and lasting influence with the myths and legends stripped away. -- back cover
