‘A Man Named Martin’
As the 500th anniversary of the Reformation approaches, many people are asking ‘Just who was this man Martin Luther?’
A Man Named Martin is a fresh look at an individual who, down through the centuries, has significantly influenced the Christian church. All the details of Luther’s life are included in the three-part series: his childhood with his parents Hans and Margaret, his university pursuits, his decision to become a monk, his protestation against Catholic practices, his scholastic output, his life in hiding, and his roles as husband and father – are all considered in this series.
In A Man Named Martin – Part 1: The Man viewers encounter the 15th-century religious reformer who was originally a monk. Luther’s Spirit-inspired grasp of God’s justification of sinners through faith in the Saviour was the cornerstone of the Reformation.
In this five-session Bible study, Luther’s life and times are examined through the lenses of history, religion and theology.
A Man Named Martin – Part 2: The Moment examines the errant teachings and wayward traditions of the Late Medieval Church that eventually sparked the Protestant Reformation, a theological overhaul set in motion most notably by Martin Luther’s nailing of the 95 Theses to the church door at Wittenberg.
There are 3 videos, a discussion guide and a Reformation Twelve booklet on the twelve key people to the Reformation.

‘I saw your Martin Luther videos on your website and was wondering if I could get a DVD version for my small group that meets every Thursday. I’m interested in learning more about Martin Luther as a person.’
‘I was wondering how I could get a copy of the Martin Luther videos for my friendship group. Thanks.’

‘I have forwarded a link for this to some of my friends, one of which is a fallen away Lutheran who was profoundly and deeply moved by Luther’s example of integrity and humility. I would like to add how much I appreciated the accuracy of the commentary and witness of the gospel throughout each part.’
