    This is one of my favorite books this year Not only does Metaxis tell a lively and entertaining story of Luther s life, he explains how world changing his stand for the truth really was This is truly wh...

    One of the most difficult seriously written biographical books on a serious topic I ve had the misfortune of plodding through I read that some readers found the author s style engaging and witty I only found his writing style simplistic, pompous, and cringe worthy In almost every other line, Metaxes writes with excessive superlatives and gross exaggerations He butchers the beauty of simple writing by filling his sentences with needless hyperbole and fillers, such as truly, very, gre One of the most difficult seriously written biographica...

    Meh at best as a pop bio from a conservative evangelical POV worse than that otherwisePer the first half of my header, that s the only reason I rated this book with two stars rather than one Even though Metaxas discusses Luther s differences with the Reformed on the Eucharist, and a lesser degree on other things, and even tries to take a look at both the philosophy and theology behind this while failing as much as succeeding , Metaxas still tries to paint Luther as a modern American conservat Meh at best as a pop bio from a conservative evangelical POV worse than that otherwisePer the first half of my header, that s the only reason I rated this book with two stars rather than one Even though Metaxas discusses Luther s differences wi...

    I have always found it interesting that you can profitably read a lot about some people in context without reading a biography while for others it seems important to read through their life story The trouble, of course, is knowing which is which I was hesitant to start the new Metaxas biography of Luther How does one go about writing a one volume biography of one of the most commented upon lives ever I feared it would prove grossly oversimplified and not do justice to Luther.How silly of me I have always found it interesting that you can profitably read a lot about some people in context without reading a biography while for others it seems important to read through their life story ...

    Good read overall Not to be controversial, but I thought the prologue and epilogue alone were enough to get a good feel for the impact of Luther s life If you don t have time to read the whole book Overall, this was a good picture of how God used a deeply flawed...
