Reviews for The Making of Martin Luther

A remarkable piece of writing that will have an enduring influence. With shrewd and canny insights, powerful prose, and wit, Richard Rex offers a persuasive and provocative tour through the early years of the Reformation. -Bruce Gordon, author of John Calvin's Institutes of the Christian Religion : A Biography The Making of Martin Luther is a nice jumping-off point for Luther scholarship, whether you're a believer/theologian or a secularist/agnostic/atheist. -Manhattan Book Review Readable, free of jargon, and entertaining. -Bradley A. Peterson, Reading Religion A remarkably sympathetic portrait of the Reformer, and it is possibly the best concise study of Luther's early reforming career that I have read. -Carl R. Trueman, First Things Brilliant. -Melanie McDonagh, The Spectator
