Review:
This is a very helpful little book which brings together in a short compass a great deal of scholarship. Books about Luther would, after all, fill a medium sized library so it is quite an achievement to present such a complex figure with economy but also thoroughness. Professor Whitford's style is readable and clear, fitting the book for the non-specialist and the general reader. There is a particularly good bibliography which would guide the brave into more specialized studies.
