The name of Martin Luther to this day excites a variety of opinions. Some see it as the symbol of courageous opposition to institutional corruption. Some see his work and teaching as the Reformation of Christianity to a pure state. Others see it as heretical and violently opposed to the Catholic Church, that is, the true Church as founded by Jesus Christ. In this concise, easy-to-read book, meticulously sourced by Henry Connor, S.J. from the letters and books of Martin Luther himself in the original German, the "Reformer" tells us in his own words exactly who he is and what he intends to accomplish.
