From the author of the acclaimed biography Martin Luther: Renegade and Prophet, new perspectives on how Luther and others crafted his larger-than-life imageMartin Luther was a controversial figure during his lifetime, eliciting strong emotions in friends and enemies alike, and his outsized persona has left an indelible mark on the world today.
"Roper' s book proves that a rigorously scholarly work can also be a pleasure to read. "---Dan Hitchens, The Times "[Living I Was Your Plague] may unsettle in ways that open diligent readers to new vision. The book accomplishes something that few of the books about Luther occasioned by the 2017 anniversary accomplished: it sees Luther with fresh eyes and shows us why we need to wrestle with his legacy. "---Vincent Evener, Christian Century "Intelligent and absorbing"---Sean Sheehan, The Prisma
