But is that true? Did he really nail his Ninety-five Theses to the church door? Did he throw an inkpot at the devil? Did he plant an apple tree, or did his wife escape her convent in a herring barrel? German radio and television journalist Andreas Malessa looks at the real history of Luther and concludes that most of these tales are simply that—utter nonsense. Diving gleefully into the research, Malessa uncovers the many falsehoods and fallacies surrounding the reformer, rejecting them in favor of the still-incredible facts. Liberally interspersed with humor and irony, Malessa not only entertains but also demon- strates a profound respect for Luther’s life and mission. Readers looking for the truth of the man behind the theses will come away with a new understanding of his incredible life—with all the myths stripped away. Andreas Malessa is a theologian, author, and lyricist, most recently for the musical Amazing Grace. He and his wife live near Stuttgart and have two grown daughters. | 18 | HISTORY ISBN 978-0-8254-4456-2 9 7 8 0 8 2 5 4 4 4 5 6 2 The Unreformed Martin Luther A Serious (and Not So Serious) Look at the Man Behind the Myths Andreas Malessa Foreword by Paul L.
