Excerpt from the foreword

by John MacArthur

Luther’s indelible legacy will always be the example of his faith. His heroic courage, deep passion, steadfast integrity, infectious zeal, and all his other virtues are the fruit of his faith. This one man made an impact on the church and on the world that still influences all Bible-believing Christians today.

Luther would not have sought any honor for himself. By his own testimony, he owed everything to Christ. The story of his life confirms that testimony. Conversion utterly transformed Luther from an anxious, fainthearted monk into a paragon of confident, contagious faith. The more he faced opposition from Rome, the more his biblical convictions deepened. Everything positive in Luther’s life points back to his life-changing encounter with the righteousness of God and the glory of Christ in the gospel.


Under the editorial leadership of Drs. Stephen J. Nichols and R.C. Sproul, a team of thirteen notable authors, theologians, and pastors insightfully craft an intimate portrait of Martin Luther through essays covering his life, thought, and legacy.
