He's the wolf screaming in the lonely night... Shout, shout, shout, shout at the devil! At least, that's what Martin Luther did. In his early years as a monk, Martin Luther became the best monk anyone had ever seen. But it wasn't enough. He struggled with the devil in quiet moments of torture over his sin, but eventually he truly got saved. How did that happen? What was his life like during this period? We discuss the answers to these questions and more in this fourth episode of our volume on the Lutheran Reformation.
Episode 5 releases in two weeks, on September 1st, with our discussion of the contents and context of perhaps Luther's most famous work, the 95 Theses. Don't miss it!
We also produce a second podcast that serves as a companion to this one called "Saints Gone Before." As of the release of this episode of An Oral History of the Church, we've already begun our latest text, Martin Luther's On the Babylonian Captivity of the Church. It's an exciting text. We're having a good time, and hope you join us over there for Lutheran texts and many others with new episodes every Monday morning.
An Oral History of the Church is co-hosted by Jonathan McCormick and Adam Christman. It is edited and produced by Adam Christman.
