Martin Luther gehört zu den bedeutendsten Persönlichkeiten der Geschichte. Er warfare ein Kirchen- und Sozialreformer, er wurde mit seiner Bibelübersetzung zum Sprachschöpfer. Zu Recht wird er gefeiert als Befreier des Individuums von Dogmen und Institutionen. Friedrich Schorlemmer skizziert den faszinierenden, sinnenfrohen Menschen mit all seinen Facetten und Widersprüchen den unbeugsamen Mönch, streitbaren Publizisten, begnadeten Prediger, liebevollen Ehemann und Hausvater. Er zeigt aber auch, wie viel Erkenntnis, Trost und Ermutigung uns Luthers Schriften noch im 21. Jahrhundert geben können.
