Eric Metaxas.  Martin Luther. the Man Who Rediscovered God and Changed the World,   Penguin/Random House.  480 Pages.  ISBN: 9781101980019

On All Hallowís Eve in 1517, a young monk named Martin Luther posted a document he hoped would spark an academic debate, but that instead ignited a conflagration that would forever destroy the world he knew. Five hundred years after Lutherís now famous Ninety-five Theses appeared, Eric Metaxas paints a startling portrait of the wild figure whose adamantine faith cracked the edifice of Western Christendom and dragged medieval Europe into the future. Written in riveting prose and impeccably researched, Martin Luther tells the searing tale of a humble man who, by bringing ugly truths to the highest seats of power, caused the explosion whose sound is still ringing in our ears. Lutherís monumental faith and courage gave birth to the ideals of liberty, equality, and individualism that today lie at the heart of all modern life.   $19.99 from
