Wanted to commend this book here because it carries a blurb by this forum's eponym, who writes, "If you had to make a list of five people who shaped the modern West, Martin Luther would be on it. Yet almost everything you think you know about Luther is wrong, as Eric Metaxas shows in this brilliant biography. This is an amazing story, beautifully told. You'll emerge wiser."

Yeah, that's a cheesy way for me to sneak onto to a new forum, and Tucker probably blurbs an awful lot, but there it is. It's a commendable book and does take advantage of new discoveries about Luther (like his childhood homemade marbles) as well as dissolution of the legendary in his life (like nailing the theses when paste was probably used). Plus you learn some theology and why the West and the church are the way they are. Enjoy.
