“A mighty fortress is our God, a bulwark never failing;
Our helper He, amid the flood of mortal ills prevailing:
For still our ancient foe doth seek to work us woe;
His craft and pow’r are great, and, armed with cruel hate,
On earth is not his equal.”
The tenth and final episode of our volume on the Lutheran wing of the Protestant Reformation completes our study by looking at some of the enduring legacy of Martin Luther. We look at his impact on corporate worship, hymnody, Bible translating, clerical marriage, denominations, and the continued divide between Protestants and Catholics.
