R.C. Sproul, Luther and the Reformation (Sanford: Ligonier Ministries, 2021), 112 pp.
Luther and the Reformation by R.C. Sproul is a short overview of the events that shook the world in the sixteenth century. Dr. Sproul surveys the iconic life of Martin Luther, Roman Catholic monk turned evangelical theologian. He traces Luther’s steps from the famous thunderbolt experience to the door of the monastery.
After wrestling with Paul’s letter to the church at Rome, which eventually led to his conversion, Dr. Sproul walks readers through the progression of events from Wittenberg, Worms, and the Wartburg castle.
Luther and the Reformation, while brief is an easy-to-read account of Luther’s life and theological commitments. It may serve as “first steps” for readers who are unfamiliar with the Protestant Reformation and also serve as a “refresher course” for students versed in these matters.
