This is Fr. O'Hare's popular account of Luther's life and work, based on the works of Protestant historians. It is a fascinating history, full of damning evidence about him that is quite contrary to the popular image, and with many quotes from his own mouth. One gets a good sense of his personal life and doctrines by reading this book. Although neither a novel nor a biography, this longer historical-biographical work is a wonderful and very rewarding expose not only of Luther and his criminal revolt against our glorious Church and Faith, but also of the founders of Protestantism in general (as it also touches on the other arch-heretics Calvin, Zwingley, etc.) Highly recommended. Warning: one chapter near the end of the book should be skipped, as it brings out the full consequences of Luther’s shocking errors on morality and free will.
