Speaking of Luther, have you seen that Steven Ozment has a new title coming out?

Excellent! I will be getting myself a copy shortly as well (I love me some Ozment!).

The Economist isn't in general. A lot of scholarly publications on the Reformation ARE dry however, so I've started noting which ones aren't, so people know which ones are easier to read and which ones they need to be wide awake and caffeinated for.
