HERE I STAND: A Life of Martin Luther
Roland Bainton

"I cannot.. I will not... recant! Here I stand." This authoritative and inspiring story paints a vivid portrait of the crusader who spearheaded the Reformation. Considered one of the most readable biographies of Martin Luther, this volume is an illustrated look at the German religious reformer and his influence on Western civilization.

Martin Luther entered a monastery as a youth and as a man shattered the structure of the medieval church. Luther spoke out against the corrupt religious practices that then existed. His demand that the authority for doctrine and practice be Scriptures, rather than Popes or Councils, echoed around the world and ignited the Great Reformation. Accused of heresy and threatened with excommunication and death, Luther maintained his bold stand and refused to recant. In his crusade to eliminate religious abuses, he did more than any other man to establish the Protestant faith. With sound historical scholarship and penetrating insight, Roland Bainton examines Luther's widespread influence. He re-creates the spiritual setting of the sixteenth century, showing Luther's place within it and influence upon it. Richly illustrated with more than 100 woodcuts and engravings from Luther's own time, Here I Stand dramatically brings to life Martin Luther, the great reformer.

Bainton published Here I Stand: A Life of Martin Luther in 1950. As of 2008, it is still in print. Kenneth Scott Latourette, in the chapter notes for "Luther and the Rise and Spread of Lutheranism" in his History of Christianity, lauds Bainton's biography of Luther as "A superb combination of accurate scholarship based upon a thorough knowledge of the sources and secondary works with insight, vivid, readable literary style, and reproductions of contemporary illustrations. It also contains so valuable a bibliography as to render needless an extended one in this chapter." In his chapter on Luther's writings in Invitation to the Classics, Mark A. Noll singles out BaintonÆs biography:

"Of the many superlative treatments, a half-century old study by Roland Bainton, Here I Stand: A Life of Martin Luther, has justly won a reputation as a classic work on a classic subject."

MARTIN LUTHER: Christian Biographies for Young Readers
Simonetta Carr

Five hundred years ago, a monk named Martin Luther wrote ninety-five questions, hoping to start a discussion about sin and repentance at the University of Wittenberg in Germany. In a few months those questions had stirred the nation; a few years later, the continent. Today we know that those questions changed the course of both the Western church and world history. In this volume for children, Simonetta Carr tells the compelling story of this father of the Protestant Reformation, tracing his quest for peace with God, his lifelong heroic stand for GodÆs truth, and his family life and numerous accomplishments. The Reformer's greatest accomplishment, she writes, "has been his uncompromising emphasis on the free promise of the gospel."

THE THEOLOGY OF THE REFORMATION
Benjamin B. Warfield

In 1917, at the 400th anniversary of the Reformation, Benjamin B. Warfield wrote this outstanding article which appeared in The Biblical Review which was published by The Biblical Seminary in New York. Here Warfield set forth, as only he could, the true Heart of the Reformation. In opposition to many in his day who were seeking to find the genius and the genesis of the Reformation in something other than theology, Warfield wrote: "The Reformation was then - we insist upon it - precisely the substitution of one set of theological doctrines for another. That is what it was to Luther; and that is what, through Luther, it has been to the Christian world. Exactly what Luther did was for himself - for the quieting of his aroused conscience and the healing of his deepened sense of sin - to rediscover the great fact, the greatest of all the great facts of which sinful man can ever become aware, that salvation is by the pure grace of God alone."

"Like his younger colleague at 'Old Princeton,' J. Gresham Machen, Warfield believed that the Christian faith is capable of scholarly defense. In this study, Warfield takes on fallacious, dismissive views of the Reformation set forth by the foremost historian of the early twentieth century, Charles Beard. Warfield shows what the Reformation was at its heart, and how its doctrines alone account for its astonishing power and its manifold effects as a movement in history. And he does so thoroughly armed with forceful arguments and substantial evidence, in a style unsurpassed for sanity, clarity, and more than a bit of scintillating dash. Recommended reading for all Reformed Christians!" - Dr. Joel R. Beeke, President, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, Michigan

"B B Warfield was a remarkable Christian author, equally at home in Church History and systematic theology as biblical studies. He is remembered today primarily for his robust theology of biblical inerrancy, but there are many other reasons to remember him. In particular, in this quincentennial of the Reformation, Warfield's cogent reflections on theásignificance of the Reformation are important documents to read. Very glad to see these texts back in circulation!" - Dr. Michael Haykin, Professor of Church Histroy, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, KY

Sam Waldron wrote: "One of my sons is named after Benjamin Breckenridge Warfield. áso you might guess that I love his stuff.á Over the years and especially in my early years he became my teacher on many, many issues.á Even on the rare occasion when I disagree with him, he remains so very helpful and informative.á I welcome the publication of these works by Solid Ground."

This new booklet is the first of a new series entitled SGCB REFORMATION 500 which will introduce vitally important works to the church and the world as we approach the 500th anniversary of Luther's act of naling the 95 Theses to the Church Door at Wittenburg.

Our other soon-to-be-released work is called THE NINETY-FIVE THESES IN THEIR THEOLOGICAL SIGNIFICANCE by Warfield.

THE NINETY-FIVE THESES IN THEIR THEOLOGICAL SIGNIFICANCE
Benjamin B Warfield

In 1917, at the 400th anniversary of the Reformation, Benjamin B. Warfield wrote this outstanding article which appeared in The Princeton Theological Review. Once again Warfield found himself standing in opposition to the opinions of many in his day who were very critical of the 95 Theses of Luther. Warfield corrected one of these notions when he wrote: "The Theses constitute, in point of fact, a theological document of the first importance, working out a complete and closely knit argument against, not the abuses of the indulgence traffic, and not even the theory of indulgences, merely, but the whole sacerdotal conception of the saving process; an outgrowth and embodiment of which indulgences were."

"Foundational documents are often more revered as sacred totems or set up as straw men to attack, than read, studied, and rightly understood on their own terms. Warfield shows that such has been the case with Luther's famous Ninety-five Theses. He sets out to show that far from addressing only one objectionable practice of the day, Luther's theses call in question 'the entire prevalent theory of the relation of the Church as the institute of the salvation of souls,' that is, the gospel or way of salvation as proclaimed by the pre-Reformation church. He goes on to show that those who underestimate the Theses as a theological statement are so wide of the mark as to suggest that they never read them. And as always, Warfield depends on erudition, clear-headed thinking, and a gracious yet forceful style. A 'must read' for those who want to know what the Reformation truly was in its beginnings." - Dr. Joel R. Beeke, President, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids,

"B B Warfield was a remarkable Christian author, equally at home in Church History and systematic theology as biblical studies.

REMEMBERING LUTHER'S FIGHT: A Primer on Martin Luther's Life and Legacy of Standing for the Gospel
Kurt M. Smith

"There seems to be no end of Luther studies and especially in this year, 2017, when many are celebrating the beginning of the Reformation. Kurt Smith's brief study is extremely helpful, though: he isolates the core legacy of Luther and why his life and thought is still needful of study and reflection today. Moreover, he is quite prepared to strike new ground based on a careful reading of the evidence: his dating of Luther's conversion to 1518 is a case in point and that as the real beginning of the Reformation (should we then be shifting our celebration to next year?!) With the questions at the close, this is an ideal tool for studying the significance of Luther's life and having something to celebrate (whether this year or next!)" - Michael A G Haykin, Professor of Church Histroy, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, KY

"REMEMBERING LUTHER'S FIGHT is a shot of spiritual B-12 and caffeine to jolt slumbering saints to full attention. Kurt Smith has read the right books,ámade the right connections and seen the right things and explained it so we can all understand and profit from it. How do you answer the mostáimportnat question in the whole world--"What must I do to be saved?" áMartin Luther was brought to his senses by the grace of God to see that the answer to life's most important question is--salvation is by God's grace alone áby faith alone in Christ alone. No other question or answer is as important. If medical doctors lose their license to practice for misdiagnosing patients and mistreating them to their injury and death, how much more accountable areáphysicians of souls who mislead poor sinners to their eternal ruin. Thank God for such a helpful and concise introduction to Martin Luther and his recovery of the gospel." - Steve Martin, Coordinator of ARBCA, The Association of Reformed Baptist Churches of America

HEROES OF THE REFORMATION: Life-Changing Lessons for the Young
Richard Newton

William G. Blaikie wrote the following words about the author of this book on Heroes of the Reformation, "In preaching to the young, Dr. Newton has attained the first rank in this department of work. The American mind has such a proclivity to sharp, terse forms of expression, clever analogies and illustrations, keen analysis of feelings, vivid description and warm coloring, that we do not wonder tghat it should excel in addresses to which such qualities contribute so largely."

C.H. Spurgeon said of this volume: "The records of the Reformation translated into fascinating language for young people, by one who knows how to enthrall youthful ears and hearts. A book which should be read by every boy and girl throughout the empire."

This volume includes brief but very informative sketches on the likes of Wycliffe, Huss, Savonarola, Luther, Melancthon, Tyndale, Edward the Sixth, John Fox, Latimer and Ridley, Cranmer, Knox, Zwingli, Calvin, Farel, Alasco, Gustaus Adolphus and several others.

In the words of the author, "There is nothing more helpful to us, in seeking to serve God, than to try and learn the practical lessons which we find illustrated in the lives of the good and holy men, who have been a blessing to the church and to the world through their faithful labors. The 'Heroes of the Reformation' belong to this class, and these sketches of their noble lives are sent forth in the earnest hope that through God's blessing they may prove useful to the young who are trying to serve him."
