Martin Luther by Martin E Marty ( Book )
18 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and held by 2,162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A minister, historian, and scholar reassesses the life and times of Martin Luther, describing his seminal role in the Reformation; his religious beliefs and fresh interpretation of the human relationship with God; his conflict with Church leaders; and his lasting influence on world history and religion. Martin Marty--professor, author, pastor, historian, and journalist is, in Bill Moyer's words, the most influential interpreter of American religion. In Martin Luther a man of unswerving faith, rooted in his own Lutheran tradition yet deeply committed to helping enrich a pluralist society, brings to powerful life the devout Reformation figure whose despair for a perilous world, felt anew in our own times, drove him to a ceaseless search for assurance of God's love. It was one that led him steadily to a fresh interpretation of human interaction with God as born solely from God's grace and not the church's mediation and to the famous theses he posted at Wittenberg in 1517. Luther's persistence in this belief, and in his long battle with church leaders embellished by rich historical background makes Martyr's biography riveting reading. Luther's obdurate yet receptive stance, so different from the travestied image of fundamentalism we currently face, restored the balance between religion and the individual. Martin Luther is at once a fascinating history, a story of immense spiritual passion and amazing grace, and a superb intellectual biography

Today people are curious about who the WASPs really are and were.

The author structures his investigation around problems of conflict: between races, social classes, between denominations and "schools."

Religion and republic : the American circumstance by Martin E Marty ( Book )
7 editions published between 1987 and 1989 in English and held by 1,474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The past few years have seen a growing tendency by political and religious leaders to invent a homogeneous past--a golden age of perfect consensus on values and morals. Martin Marty shows that such a golden age never existed. In his exploration of religious diversity in the United States from the colonial past to the present, Marty takes seriously the fragile character and modest promise of American pluralism. He reveals how the vitality of the American experience has always depended on the fact that values and morals are generated in subcultures and worked out in a common society

Religion, ethnicity, and self-identity nations in turmoil ( )
9 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 1,064 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ethnicity and religion at the end of this century are fused in surprising, creative, and ominous ways. News stories connect words like Orthodox, Muslim, Jewish, Catholic, and Protestant with various movements of peoples. Whereas ethnicity and religion have, in the past, succumbed to secular, urban, technological, ideological, educational, and mass communication influences, they now surface as a freshly volatile force in world cultures. To overcome these conventional influences, people establish personal and group identity, mutual security, and empowerment by creatively merging their ethnicity and religion. This collection of essays examines, in Martin Marty's terms, the "explosion of public faith and aggressive action."
