Think not that I am sent to bring peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother and the daughter in law against her mother in law. And a man's foes shall be they of his own household.
This is the English translation of "Unterwegs zu Luther" a travel book covering 50 of the most significant places in Martin Luther's life. Heinz Stade's search for traces and evidence of the Reformation offers a lively impression of each of these places. Not only are the most important stations in Martin Luther's life included, but also many of the scenes of key events in the Reformation are described.
A number of these travelogues are complemented by short theological-spiritual "miniatures" by Thomas Seidel. These miniatures illuminate Luther's ideas and his influence on the modern world.
The photographs by Harald Wenzel-Orf accompany the text with artistic professionalism.
The dependable translation by John Gledhill makes this Luther travel book accessible for the international readership.
In the Footsteps of Martin Luther is published by Wartburg Verlag.
