• "A first-rate biography"

    Scottish Sunday Mail
  • "Scores highly in thoroughness, clarity and human sympathy. If you want a model of how to defy uncomprehending power - your equivalent of Luther's Pope, Emperor, Church - or a model of how to laugh at the Devil, Wilson has provided a reliable guide as to how Luther did it"

    Sunday Telegraph
  • "Wilson tells the story well and places it carefully in context, but what makes his book sprecial is the superb closing chapter, where he deals with what these days we would call Luther's legacy"

  • "A vibrantly written book which focuses on personalities as well as the momentous events surrounding them - the impact of which will never be lost"
