#OctTBR2022 Day 31: “Here I Stand” by Roland Bainton

[What is #OctTBR2022? I explain it here.]

What It Is: One of the most highly-regarded biographies of Martin Luther ever written.

Why I’m Reading It: OF COURSE, I’m closing out October with a Luther biography. It only makes sense. (Here I stand; I can do no other.) Bainton’s biography of the German reformer is far and away the most recommended I’ve seen, so I want to make sure I read this one.

Have you read this book? Do you have a favorite book about the Reformation? Let me know in the comments!

(And coming up tomorrow: the triumphant return of “Thirty Thankfuls.” See you then!)


#OctTBR2022 Day 2: A little more time with The Doctor

[What is #OctTBR2022? I explain it here.]

What They Are: A pair of books about Dr. Lloyd-Jones’ life, ministry, and theology by Jason Meyer and Steven Lawson.

Why I’m Reading Them: It’s a good idea and beneficial to read books about the lives of faithful men and women of the past. Considering what an impact MLJ has had and is having on my life, it’s beneficial to learn what I can about the minister’s life and legacy and take the lessons to heart.
