A look at many different aspects of how Martin Luther became the Father of the Reformation.

  • "The Accidental Revolutionary": In his quest for spiritual peace, Luther had no idea he'd leave his world in turmoil.
  • "The Parents Luther Feared Disgracing": Were they caring and firm - or so harsh they drove him to rebel against every authority in his life?
  • "What Was Luther's World Like?" The boy grew up in exciting, harsh, and violent times.
  • "The Breakthrough": When, where, and how did Luther make his astounding discovery of justification by faith?
  • "Dr. Luther's Theology": A young professor's startling insights into the graciousness of God.
  • "Protestants' Most-Famous Document": What did Luther actually say in the 95 Theses?

  • "Luther's World"
  • "Colorful Sayings of Colorful Luther": A sample of the reformer's wit and wisdom.
  • "Preaching from the Print Shop": If Luther hadn't used the new printing technology, would there have been a Reformation?
  • "Profit-Hungry Printers": Luther suffered from them, too.
  • "The Bible Translation that Rocked the World": Luther's Bible introduced mass media, unified a nation, and set the standard for future translations.
  • "The Gallery: Luther's Friends and Enemies": Luther made plenty of both.
  • "The Political Luther": The reformer revolutionized more than people's views on the church.
  • "Luther's Political Nemesis"
  • "Luther's Political Allies"
  • "Fool in Rome": As a young monk, Luther longed to see Rome. But his 1510 trip to the Holy City filled him with pain and doubt.

    Good review of Luther history.

    I thought this was a good, concise summary of Luther's important work. I look forward to listening to more issues of Christian History. Thanks, Audible, for making this magazine available!
