A Place to Stand: The Word of God in the Life of Martin Luther
by Gene Edward Veith, Jr.
When called to account for himself in front of the emperor and representatives of the pope - a single assembly, embodying the greatest political and religious powers of his times - Luther defended his writings and preaching! Facing excommunication, even execution, and given one last chance to recant, he refused, replying that his conscience was bound by the Word of God.
Nearly five centuries have passed since the trial of the man who declared before the most powerful men of his world: "Here I stand! I can do no other." All of us must stand likewise on the Word of God; learn and be inflamed by the courage of Luther.
