On October 31, 1517, Martin Luther posted his 95 Theses that sparked the beginnings of the Reformation. Undoubtedly, he changed the world . . . but for the better? From his own day to ours, Luther has been a controversial figure. He has been credited or blamed for many things, from the triumph of liberal democracy in the modern period to the Nazis’ genocide of the Jews during the Second World War. Professor Mickey Mattox explores the promise as well as the perils when attempting to appropriate the memory of the great German church reformer. Luther remains a compelling figure, a man whose faith, keen religious insight, and sometimes spectacular failures of vision have much to teach us in our day.
