Now that Martin Luther was on PBS, what should I read?

It's the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, and you want to read something to honor the occasion. Since there are as many books about Martin Luther as about Jesus, where do you even start? You can start with the PBS special if you prefer to watch the Reformation on television.

But the Reformation really was a textual revolution, so I highly recommend reading about it.

Here's a short list of solid reads. Of the making of books about Luther there is no end, but some really are better than others.

The Sturdy Biography: Read it if you want a comprehensive, fresh, and reliable look at the Reformer.

Post-colonial Luther: Reading Luther from the Margins

Brand Luther: Read if you want a unique take on Luther as a giant of social media and publishing

Fierce Luther: The Furious, Embattled Man Engaged in Spiritual Warfare

Katharina: Looking at Katharina and Martin as a couple leading the Reformation

The Graphic Novel Luther

In his own words: If you want to read one short but powerful text of Luther's
