'I cannot, I will not recant. Here I stand.'
'Here I Stand' is an outstanding and prizewinning biography of the man who took an unyielding stance against corruption; who was condemned as a heretic, excommunicated and threatened with death, yet whose unshakeable faith in God, and in man's ability to find redemption, led to the Reformation.
Martin Luther entered a monastery as a youth and, as a man, shattered the structure of the medieval church. He spoke out against the corrupt religious practices of his time, demanding that the authority for doctrine and practice be the Scriptures, rather than Popes or Councils. His message, expounded in the ninety-five theses that he posted on the church door at Wittenberg, ignited Europe and ushered in the Protestant Reformation, changing the course of history forever.
