Martin Luther by Stephen J. Nichols is an introductory guide to the life and works of reformer Martin Luther. His major works are introduced and summarized. Also discussed are his pastoral writings.

Protestants of all stripes have long read at least a few of Martin Luther’s works, but 21stcentury readers need guidance and encouragement. Stephen Nichols’s Martin Luther provides both.

After an exciting overview of Luther’s life and theology, Nichols orients the reader to some of the Reformer’s major works: The Bondage of the Will, The Three Treatises, The Small Catechism, and On the Councils and the Church. Luther’s ethical writings, “table talk,” hymns, and sermons also receive due attention. “A Select Guide to Books by and about Luther” concludes this volume, which displays more than 20 illustrations.
