For in it [the gospel] the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “But the righteous man shall live by faith.”  Romans 1:17

We are only a few days away from October 31.  How tragic that in Western Civilization that date is celebrated as the pagan festival of Halloween rather than as Reformation Day.

For it was on October 31, 1517 when little-known German monk Martin Luther posted his 95 Theses on the door of the Wittenberg Castle Church to protest errant doctrines of the dominant Roman Catholic Church, unexpectedly igniting the Protestant Reformation, a 150-year era that forever altered the Christian church and Western Civilization itself.

This weekend on The Christian Worldview, we are going to dive into the Reformation and Martin Luther.  What was Luther like, both positively and negatively?  Why was this such an important era in church and Western history?  And what should we be applying from Luther’s legacy today?

Barry Cooper is the host of the new documentary film, Luther: The Life and Legacy of the German Reformer.  He joins us to answer these questions and others.

You are highly encouraged to order a copy of the DVD documentary film, Luther: The Life and Legacy of the German Reformer.  It has won Best Documentary at the Christian Family Film Festival and Canadian International Faith and Family Film Festival.
