Man Between God and the DevilBook - 1989
Oberman, formerly of Harvard and the University of Tubingen, and now at the U. of Arizona, is one of the foremost authorities on Luther, and this is his nearly-definitive biography of the central figure of the Protestant Reformation. He portrays Luther in the context of his times, analyzing both his state of mind and his society. First published in Germany in 1982, the biography later won the Historischer Sachbuchpreis, a German "super-prize" for the best history published during a ten-year period.
