The effect of the Lutheran Reformation of the Church on the history of the world can hardly be overstated. Quite simply, it caused one of the most profound sea-changes in history. In fact, When US News and World Report ranked the most important events of the last 1000 years, the Lutheran Reformation placed second, right behind Gutenberg’s moveable type printing press. Now consider that for a minute… That means that they considered the Lutheran Reformation to be of greater significance than the discovery of the New World (number 3 on the list).
What is the Lutheran Reformation? 500 years ago a young monk named Martin Luther nailed 95 topics for debate on the church door in Wittenberg. While Martin Luther never set out to change the world, his quest for answers to burning questions of life and faith began an important era in church history. It was really a call for the church to return to the simple meaning of the Scriptures and to restore God’s grace as the prominent message of the Church.
