Craig Harline | A World Ablaze: The Rise of Martin Luther and the Birth of the Reformation

Join historian and author Craig Harline for a reading and signing of his new nonfiction book,  A World Ablaze: The Rise of Martin Luther and the Birth of the Reformation.

Martin Luther started off as a friar deeply troubled by the question of salvation and the fate of his own eternal soul, and the conflict that played out within him eventually expanded to encompass the whole of Christendom. October 2017 will mark 500 years since Luther nailed his 95 theses to the church door in Wittenburg, launching the Protestant Reformation. At least, that’s what the legend says. But with a figure like Luther, who looms so large in the historical imagination, it’s hard to separate the legend from the life, or even sometimes to separate assorted legends from each other.
