    The Unreformed Martin Luther

    A Serious (and Not So Serious) Look at the Man Behind the Myths

    Will the real Martin Luther please stand up?

    After five hundred years of examining the life of the "father of the Reformation," we must surely know all there is to know about Martin Luther. 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?

    Did his wife escape her convent in a herring barrel?

    German radio and television journalist Andreas Malessa looks at the actual history of Luther and concludes that many of the tales we know best are nothing but nonsense.

    Diving gleefully into the research, Malessa investigates many of the falsehoods and fallacies surrounding the reformer, rejecting them in favor of equally incredible facts. Full of humor and irony, this book educates and entertains while demonstrating a profound respect for Luther's life and mission.

    If you're looking for the truth of the man behind the theses, come discover his faith and influence--with the myths stripped away.
