What the Critics Say

"Evoke[s] the sense of moral purpose that Luther's life inspired. Lewis' nuanced reading provides whatever shading and perspective the narrative requires...while preserving the respect and admiration for Luther that the author so clearly feels." (AudioFile)

    "Well written and narrated."

    This treatment of Martin Luther's pioneering reformation of the church is valuable because it will appeal just as much to a person who has not otherwise studied the period as it will to the one who has. Both will find stimulating comment located within the boundaries of accurate historical record.

    "GOOD BUT MORE DETAIL WOULD HAVE MADE IT BETTER"

    I enjoyed listening to this book and learnt much from it but I emerged with a desire to have more detail and breadth.

    It was worth the listen but its 2 and bit hours was inadequate for the task.
    A greater elaboration of how Luther impacted the prevailing culture and why would have made the book much more satisfying for me.

    "Not a historical work"

    This book is a) not written in an objective way whatsoever (it is often denigrating to Catholicism of the era as well as patronizing), and b) written for an audience of about a 10 year-old boy. If you're looking for a historical portrayal of Luther, THIS AIN'T IT.
