by J. H. Merle d'Aubigne
Luther's story was never better told than by Swiss historian Jean Henri Merle d'Aubigne. The liveliness of Merle's style, his extensive and remarkable use of original quotations, and the rich biographical color of his work make it enjoyable to read. More than that, Merle's evangelical fervor, his commitment to biblical truth, and his fundamental sympathy with the spirit of the Reformation strike a responsive chord in the the heart of the Christian.
