Here I Stand : A Life of Martin Luther
"I cannot. I will not recant. Here I stand". Accused of heresy, threatened with excommunication and death, Martin Luther spoke these fateful words as he took his unyielding position against the abuses of the medieval church. This text is a biography of the man who, because of his unshakeable faith in his god, became the instigator and chief architect of the Protestant Reformation.
