|Publisher||Grand Rapids, Mich. : Baker Books : c1999.|
This work considers the ways in which Martin Luther's contemporaries and successors used his influence in the German Reformation and adapted it to the needs of the church in their respective ages. Robert Kolb suggests Luther's disciples viewed him in three different ways: as prophet, teacher, and hero. The second section of the book focuses on the use and collection of Luther's writings.
