Being a former Christian and Messianic Jew and now a practicing Orthodox Jew, I thought this book would be perfect for me to read and review. In fact, I acquire an advance reader copy of the text when I was leaving the evangelical fold for Judaism. This book did not do anything to reconcile my concerns and issues I found within the Jesus camp.
For this book, I sought my wife’s thoughts on the book, to best review the emotional connection this tale can tell. This is her review.
Roper’s attempt at a truthful look at Luther, a historical figure that changed the landscape of Christianity, is honest and needed. At the time of the publication of this book, and this review as well, the 500 year anniversary is upon Germany for the Reformation.
