Martin Luther on Holy Baptism : Sermons to the People (1525-39) - (Paperback)
About this item
Martin Luther has been the subject of hundreds of efforts at biography in the last 500 years, and the Reformation's 500th anniversary has seen the appearance of the latest wave. The long succession of Luther biographies stretches back to Luther's own autobiographical efforts, which were quickly supplemented by his colleagues, friends, and students as they sought to collect his works, narrate his history, and reflect on the significance of his life and teaching. This volume presents some of these earliest sources for the biography of the Reformer, making most of them accessible in English for the first time.
