Audible Editor Reviews

In 1501, a 34-year-old professor bravely nailed his "95 Theses" to the door of a church in Germany, asking theological questions meant to provoke discussion about the Catholic Church’s use of indulgences, also known as payment in exchange for God’s mercy upon one’s soul. This document led not only to questions but sparked the Protestant Reformation.

Martin Luther is a dramatized biography of the life of this persevering, courageous, and flawed man, narrated with bucolic British lilt by Geoffrey Hinsliff, the determined title character confidently performed by John Green, with additional characters provided by Gary Hope and Robin Scoby.

Publisher's Summary

Martin Luther, a man born of peasant stock in Saxony, was destined to change the religious thinking of Europe. Although intended to be a lawyer, an inner religious conflict caused him to enter a monastery. Then, after three years of its strict discipline, he became a professor of the University of Wittenberg. His career as a reformer began when he nailed his famous "Ninety-Five Theses" to the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg on All Saints Day in 1517. In this audio biography, John MacKelvie, himself a Protestant Minister, brings to life the stirring days of the 1500s and traces the effect upon subsequent centuries of one humble but rebellious monk.

The part of Martin Luther is played by John Green. Other parts are played by Gary Hope and Robin Scoby.
