"Blackbird singing in the dead of night, take those sunken eyes and learn to see. All your life, you were only waiting for this moment to be free. Blackbird, fly." Jonathan and Adam talk about several more texts by Martin Luther, the good (including one about the Freedom of a Christian), and the bad. We also answered our first reader question!

Today's episode features The Schmalkald Articles, and On the Freedom of a Christian, among others.

"She had taken his hand. She had become like they are. Come on, baby, don't fear the reaper..." Or, at least, that's one way of restating Luther's advice in one of the texts we discuss in today's episode describing and contextualizing four of this Reformer's works. And this is only part 1 of a two-part miniseries within this volume! Come back on Sept. 29th for more!

And we encourage you to not miss our readings of Luther's "The Babylonian Captivity of the Church" on Saints Gone Before!

I hear the drums echoing tonight,
But she hears only whispers of some quiet conversation... oh, wait, no, that's just the quill of Martin Luther, scrawling down his 95 Theses, the subject of our latest episode on Luther and the Protestant Reformation! We dig into the document, but we especially focus on context in which it arose, what it challenges, and who it challenges! Come back in 2 weeks for another episode!
Don't miss our readings of Luther's "The Babylonian Captivity of the Church" on Saints Gone Before!
