In October of 1517, German theologian and Augustinian monk, Martin Luther posted a series of 95 theses to the door of Castle Church in Wittenberg, Germany. While his intention, 'out of love for the truth and from desire to elucidate it' (Preface), was to discuss and debate the misuse of indulgences, these 95 theses were instead interpreted by the church as an attack on the power of the papacy. The resulting events and responses ignited a reformation of beliefs and practices of the Roman Catholic Church, with Luther's nailing of the Theses serving as the symbolic birth of the Protestant Reformation.
Luther's 95 theses formed but a beginning and spark for discussion...yet we still read these enduring and valuable words. In anticipation of the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation come these special reader's edition copies of Martin Luther's 95 Theses, celebrating the richness of Reformation theology with a clear, English translation of the theses that started it all.
The careful biblical study that moved Luther to write the 95 theses served as fuel for his personal devotion, his professorial calling, and his pastoral interest in the care of souls--starting with his own. The theses reflect his concern for certainty of salvation. As stated in what has been called the noblest of the theses, 'the true treasure of the church is the most holy gospel of the glory and grace of God' (Thesis 62).
These 500th anniversary copies of Luther's 95 Theses come in packs of 10 booklets each.
