For nearly thirty years, Luther the Reformer has been the standard Luther biography. Fair, insightful, and detailed without being overwhelming, Kittelson was able to negotiate a “middle way” that presented a more complete chronological picture of Luther than many had yet portrayed. For this revised edition, Hans H.
