Reviews - What do customers think about Martin Luther: His Road to Reformation 1483-1521?

Simply the Best  Jun 12, 2005
There is no other biography of Luther, in English, that surpasses this volume, and the other two in the series, by Martin Brecht. These volumes are the most comprehensive biographies of Luther available to day. Brecht is a very careful scholar and offers the reader a detailed description of Luther's life and work. While not as readable as Bornkamm's single volume's on Luther in mid-career, Brecht offers a depth and scope of detail available nowhere else.
Fascinating depth of background on Luther  Feb 22, 2005
This book is the first part of a trilogy on the life of Luther. (The other volumes are: "Martin Luther: Shaping and Defining the Reformation," and "Martin Luther: The Preservation of the Church.") This book starts with Luther's birth and early life. We can feel as though we're at Luther's side as he begins study at the university, makes a vow to become a monk during a frightening thunderstorm, and sets out to become a very observant monk, developing the scolarship and focuses that will lead him to start an accidental reformation. Very interesting and detailed information. This volume takes us up to the posting of the 95 Theses. It also contains many interesting photographs.
Coram Deo  Oct 26, 2002
"Man before God," that sums up Luther's resultant reformation in theology. Brecht in this volume of three, takes us into the context of this change and the resultant history thereof.

It is marvelously rich in its scope and depth, and written fairly and with good style. Originially in German, here it is aptly translated by James L. Schaaf.

One will receive fine insights into Luther's theology in this volume from his days at Erfurt through to the Diet of Worms.

Excellent Luther reading for those so inclined. All three volumes highly commended for your persual.

Comprehensive, positivistic bio by conservative German prof  Jan 19, 2002
Brecht's biography (3 volumes--this is volume one) was the first comprehensive biography in our century that fully explored the later Luther and is also the only Luther biography that tracks every single thing Luther ever wrote. If you are reading something by Luther and want to know the context, this is the place to look. It's readable and takes a conservative position on all of the major controversies. Beware, though: Brecht simply is not interested in source critique.
