  A Life of Martin Luther
by Roland H. Bainton

The Adult Bible Class will start the Martin Luther Series on September 24. We are using the book by Professor Roland H. Bainton, called A Life of Martin Luther. He was the Titus Street Professor of Ecclesiastical History at Yale Divinity School.

In the 16th Century, Martin Luther was a German monk whose protest against some of the doctrines of the Catholic Church led to the Protestant Reformation. Through Bainton’s book, he brings to life Luther by carefully unfolding historical events which led up to the reformation and events that helped to shape Luther's thinking during and following the Reformation. The book begins with Luther's vow to become a monk during a thunderstorm in 1505, in order to save his soul, but he soon concluded more was needed. Luther felt the need to become perfect in order to obtain justification with God, and this quest defined Luther for the better part of his life. 

Mr. Bainton was born in Ilkeston, Derbyshire, England and came to the United States in 1902.

This is the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther’s protest, so it is also a timely class to learn and reflect what the Reformation means to us. Join us at the Adult Bible Class on Sunday at 9:30 am.
