I Am a Christian: the Nun, the Devil, and Martin Luther

This book explores a story that Martin Luther told to encourage people in despair. In the story a woman resists the devil‘s temptation to despair with the words “I am a Christian.” Part one of the book examines what that confession meant to Luther and why it was important to him. Part two investigates the woman‘s identity. Part three applies the story to modern forms of despair.
