Format: Paperback
This book helped me to see a man who loved God with all of his being, loved Scripture as the very bread we live off of, loved the Church as only a called Pastor could, and yet was still a frail human. It could be more thorough, but I agree with Evergone that it is a good spring board for the interested party to start to research Luther. I would have liked to see a little bit more on medieval theology to help the reader set a context as to why Luther's thoughts were so ground breaking to a people living in a world of works based salvation. I would recommend The European Reformations by Carter Lindberg, specifically chapters 3, 4, & 9 to help fill in holes left by Nichols.

Nichols uses sound scholarship to make an easily accessible book that is an easy read in providing some of Luther's basics.

Martin Luther a man after truth. It is a must read. He sought truth and God showed him truth. God showed himself to Martin Luther and he wanted to share this experience with the world.

Format: Paperback
This is the worst book I have ever read on the topic of Martin Luther by a person claiming to be Reformed.

The book is littered with historical and theological mistakes from start to finish.

Nichols asserts that Luther himself wrote "Table Talk" in one part of the book. Nichols writes, "Luther, in one of his table talk entries..." page 162. Any novice of church history knows that Luther did not author "Table Talk." This is poor scholarship.

Another mistake is seen when Nichols asserts that the 5-Solas are Protestant presuppositions. This is the type of mistake we expect someone from a completely different religion to make, not one who is supposed to be Calvinistic. Nichols writes, "Perhaps more than any other person, Luther shaped the presuppositions that define Protestantism. Theologians use a series of Latin expressions to capture these concepts. Known as the "Reformation Solas," they include: sola Scriptura, Scripture Alone; sola fide, faith alone; sola gratia, grace alone; solus Christus, Christ alone; and soli Deo gloria, to the glory of God alone. These ideas all take root in Martin Luther's thinking" page 16.

Sola Scriptura is the Axiom of Christianity. It is the belief that the Bible alone is the word of God. It is the only "Sola" that is presupposed. The other 4 are either explicitly stated or logically deduced from the Bible alone. Nichols is therefore wrong. For Nichols to make the absurd claim that all of the "Solas" are presupposed by Protestants is to completely misrepresent Protestant theology. Furthermore, the "Solas" do not take their root in Martin Luther's thinking. Luther merely rediscovered these principles and published them openly. He did not come up with them.
