A World Ablaze: the Rise of Martin Luther and the Birth of the Reformation, by Craig Harline, explores the Monk Martin Luther from 1517 to 1522, the five years during which he transformed himself from an obscure monk to an outlaw celebrity. The book was published in 2017 as part of the commemoration of the Reformation's 500th anniversary.
