About this title


Some would argue that there is no need for yet another biography of Martin Luther. The story has been told many times, and very well at that! And yet, interest in Luther's life and thought remains high, and each generation brings its own set of questions to the task.

This biography, begun by Timothy F. Lull prior to his death and capably finished by Derek R. Nelson, is marked for its fresh, winsome, and invigorating style—one undoubtedly shaped by the years that each author spent in undergraduate and seminary classrooms.

In this telling, Luther is an energetic, resilient actor, driven by very human strengths and failings, always wishing to do right by his understanding of God and the witness of the Scriptures. Luther is portrayed here more as a loud tenor in a Reformation chorale than as a solo voice of dissent against church and empire, as he and his work are closely linked with his many collaborators.

At times humorous, always realistic, and appropriately critical when necessary, Lull and Nelson tell the story of an amazing, unforgettable life, one that impacted our world in countless ways.

About the Author:

Derek R. Nelson is associate professor of religion at Wabash College in Crawfordsville, Indiana. He is the author of Sin: A Guide for the Perplexed (2011) and What"s Wrong with Sin: Sin in Individual and Social Perspective from Schleiermacher to Theologies of Liberation (2009) and coauthor or editor of six other books.

Timothy F. Lull was president of Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary, Berkeley, and professor of systematic theology there before his death in 2003.
