The Life of Luther is a historic and comprehensive biography of one of the Protestant Reformations most influential leaders, Martin Luther. In this book by Doctor Barnas Sears originally published in 1850, Luther principle stand on biblical authority, and his work as an educator and church leader are presented. From childhood to being educated in the Scripture, as well as the rest of his life- this book seeks to draw a personal and historical perspective on the life of Martin Luther.
If you’re interested in learning more about Martin Luther pick up this book- it will help you to understand the events that shaped the Protestant Reformation. If you like to read biographies and moving stories- there are few more moving than that of Martin Luther in church history. I believe you’ll find reading this book to be very informative, but challenging in that Luther’s life will confront you with a life lived living for and proclaiming the glory of God in Christ.
