A Treasure Revealed: Martin Luther and the Events of the Reformation

$0.00

The German church reformer Martin Luther figures large over the course of Christianity’s last 500 years. It was this man, born in 1483, whom God would use mightily to declare unequivocally to the world that is by grace – and grace alone – we are saved. In Luther we find the unflinching resolve, the hard-won erudition, the tireless search for spiritual truth, the vehemence against church abuses and, ultimately, the God-inspired truths that opened the door to the Protestant Reformation. Wrestling with Scripture, Luther struggled with man’s place before a righteous God who, naturally, must punish sinners. At this prospect Luther felt doomed. How could he ever measure up? It wasn’t until he understood Paul’s declaration that “The righteous shall live by faith” (Romans 1:17b) that hope became real. According to author Dr. Carol Geisler, “Luther understood that righteousness – holiness in the sight of God through the forgiveness of sins – is a gift from God, received through faith in Jesus. When he realised the truth about this gracious gift of God for sinners, Luther said he felt as if the gates of paradise had opened for him.”
