This second volume of Martin Brecht's definitive biography of Luther describes the years in which the distinctive aspects of the Reformation took shape. During this time four difficult conflicts--the Peasants' War, the interchange between Luther and Erasmus, debates on the Lord's Supper, and the rise of Anabapitst groups--heightened the need to fashion new orders for governing the church and for developing patterns for worship and for the instruction of youth.

Luther the theologian was also occupied with problems of politics, economy, law, and education. The problems of daily life now had to be faced by the church of the Reformation, although the political fate of the movement would remain unclear for some years. In addition, Luther's own life situation was altered by his marriage and the founding of a family.

Together with MARTIN LUTHER: HIS ROAD TO REFORMATION 1483-1521 and with the concluding third volume, Brecht's work stands as the first multi-volumed biography of Luther by a single author since the turn of the last century.
