Luther was a great man no doubt about it but following his words the focus shouldn't be on him but on the scripture and the word of God He wanted us not to remember him or his writings since he was no than a man like all of us full of doubt sins and a desire to find meaning in one's lifeOverall a very good book I enjoyed it much because it portrayed Luther as a normal man in a way that is easy to read and to understand The idea that stood for me the most was the fact that Luther was obedient faithful and believed in the church at first and wrote the 95 theses not with the intent to oppose or to create reform but with intent to signal a useless custom Once he was notified of the magnitude of his act he was afraid like any of us would be that he would end as Jan HusThis proved that he was a normal person just trying to follow the purpose he was giving himself thought the word of God
