Summary
  • This sophisticated book commemorates the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation by examining the details of Martin Luther's life and his lasting legacy
  • A fascinating look at the ideas that founded the Protestant Church Wittenberg, Germany, 1517: Martin Luther publishes 95 theses criticizing the practices of the Roman Catholic Church. With that one defiant act, a conflict begins--a conflict that will spark the Protestant Reformation and ultimately lead to the division of the Christian church. This sophisticated book commemorates the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation by examining the details of Martin Luther's life and his lasting legacy.--Publisher
