The Death of Luther

Martin Luther died at 3:00 AM on February 18, 1546. Contrary to the expectations of Luther and many of his colleagues, he did not die in Wittenberg, the location of many of his greatest accomplishments.

Luther’s ‘The Babylonian Captivity of the Church’

The Babylonian Captivity of the Church appeared in print less than a week before the papal bull against Luther reached Wittenberg in October, 1520. Both works were being prepared at the same time: while Rome was working to prosecute Luther’s heresy trail, Luther was putting the Roman sacramental system on trial.

Reflections on Luther’s Flood Prayer

Theology will always lead to prayer. We listen to God and then echo His words back to Him in prayer. If you want to know what someone believes, listen to the way that they pray.

The Virtue of Charity

During the Christmas season, the call for charity rings every time we step out of a store into the din of the bells of the Salvation Army.
