This year marks the 500th anniversary of the moment when a little-known monk named Martin Luther sparked the Protestant Reformation and changed the course of human history. But who is this man who challenged the highest authorities of his day so that the truth of the gospel could be known and preached?
Luther was the man God used to recapture the gospel in the 16th century. He restored the Word of God as the center of Christian life and worship. He reestablished the importance of family, the value of music, and the dignity of human labor. But most significantly of all, he recovered the truth that a person’s justification in the eyes of God comes by grace alone, through faith alone.
This documentary trailer offers a brief introduction into who Martin Luther is and why we should get to know him better:
