Life of Luther

Gustav A. JUST (1847 - 1924), translated by Frederik William HERZBERGER (1859 - 1930) and Martin Samuel SOMMER (1869 - 1949)

This short biography of Martin Luther, by Gustav Just, who taught at Bethlehem Evangelical Lutheran School, St. Louis, is a standard resource for students, young and old. The first five chapters give a swift moving, succinct overview of church history up to Luther’s time, and the final two chapters deal with the church after Luther’s death. Martin Luther is presented in a favorable, but objective light and his influence appreciated as the primary leader of the Reformation. - Summary by Larry Wilson
