حدود دو دهه پیش کتاب دیگری در باره ی لوتر خوانده بودم و اصلا انتظار نداشتم که این کتاب تا این حد برایم جالب باشد.ارزش هر کتاب امریست نسبی و بسته به سن و سال و حال و احوالی که هنگام خواندنش دارید.شماری از کتابها را باید در آغاز راه زندگی خواند،شماری را در میانه و یا حتی پایان ،تا بتوان بیشترین بهره ممکن را از آنها برد.

A good short biography over Martin Luther that gives you a very good overview with good details throughout. A very good read for an overview of Martin Luther's life.

My personal prejudices tarnish my reading of this hard to find Landmark title. This book was difficult to stomach. Luther upheld the authority of Scripture and Fosdick does not. I cannot get past the irony.

I read the 1957 edition. Great read-aloud for our homeschool. Though written with pre-adolescent readers in mind, the entire family enjoyed this book.

نویسنده در این کتاب تنها به صورت اجمالی به بیان سرگذشت مارتین لوتر پرداخته است،اما از رنج ها و فداکاری های لوتر و همینطور احساسات و افکار او سخن زیادی به میان نیاورده است.دیتریش بونهافر در کتاب بهای شاگردی،لوتر را یک شاگرد واقعی معرفی می کند.در مورد وی می گوید :لوتر در دو مقطع از زندگی اش فداکاری و انکار نفس کرد.نخستین بار هنگامی که وارد زندگی رهبانی شد و همه چیز جز خویشتن پاک و زاهدش را ترک گغت و دومین بار هنگامی که می خواست دیر را ترک کند و باید همه چیزش حتی همین خویشتن خود را نیز ترک می گفت.

This was from the World Landmark books series, companion to the Landmark books, which focused on U.S. history. Both were perfect for young history nerds such as I in the late fifties. As with the Landmark books, I won't enter all that I read. This serves as an example because it was the first "real" book that I read cover to cover in one sitting -- or rather, lying. It was in our basement on a Saturday afternoon when I was in the fourth grade, my head was propped on a burlap bag filled with peca ...more
