95: The Ideas That Birthed the Reformation

Martin Luther

$12.99

Paperback

In 1517, an unknown Augustinian monk, informed by his growing belief that salvation is by faith alone, published and distributed a stark criticism of papal abuses in the Catholic Church. In doing so, Martin Luther lit the spark for what would become the Protestant Reformation.

What became known as the "95 Theses" was a series of statements expressing concern with corruption within the church, primarily the selling of "indulgences" to the people as a means of releasing them from acts of penitence.

Commemorating the five hundredth anniversary of Luther's revolutionary writing, this volume matches each of the theses with an excerpt from one of his later works, offering easy access to the key ideas that catalysed the Protestant Reformation.

Martin Luther

Martin Luther (1483 , 1546) was a German monk, a theologian and church reformer, he is considered to be the founder of Protestantism. Luther was a professor of Bible at the University of Wittenberg when he posted his famous 95 Theses (1517). In addition to writing many books, Luther translated the Bible into German. Luther believed that salvation was only by faith in Jesus , unmediated by the church. He challenged papal authority by emphasing the Bible as the only source of religious authority and believed the church to be a priesthood of all believers.These ideas helped to inspire the Protestant Reformation and changed the course of Western civilization. He married Katharina von Bora thus initiating the practice of clerical marriage within Protestantism.- Publisher.
