HERE I STAND: A LIFE OF MARTIN LUTHER – Roland Bainton (1950)

My copy of Here I Stand: A Life of Martin Luther is falling apart.  I first read this classic back in 1998.  At that time, Luther’s life and legacy were still very new to me.  Now over fifteen years later, the story is no less exciting.  In fact, it just keeps getting better. Bainton’s work is clearlyContinue reading “HERE I STAND: A LIFE OF MARTIN LUTHER – Roland Bainton (1950)”
