Martin Luther The Great Reformer

Martin Luther The Great Reformer

by J. A. Morrison

Martin Luther The Great Reformer is a story told by others

who knew this great man named Martin Luther. Some of

these people followed him while others wanted to persecute

him because he dared to challenge the church and its practices.

This book is an account of Martin Luther's life and how

he came to the realization that the Roman Catholic Church had

some reforming to do. This book also speaks of all

the trails and misunderstandings that Martin Luther had

throughout his life as a monk and the rebellion against

the Roman Church.

The author explains Martin's life as a child who spent

most of his childhood in Germany. His family was not

wealthy but they were a devoted and religious people.

They taught Martin about the most important thing on

Earth and that is to know God and to do His will.

That is exactly what Martin Luther did later on in his


When Martin grew older, he became a monk in the Catholic

Church and earned his way up in rank through devotion,

prayer, and hard work. Martin soon became a priest within

the Catholic Church. Martin was a firm believer in God's

word and soon began teaching others in the classroom.

As Martin continued to read and study his Bible, he started

questioning some of his Church's beliefs and practices.

As he continued to read the Bible he started to see

certain discrepancies between God's written Word and

the Catholic Church's practices. He started to see the

truth that was written in God's Word. Martin began

telling friends about these discrepancies in beliefs,

but his friends told him to leave it alone and drop it.

Martin, however, would not leave it alone and made it

his lifes' goal to change this misunderstanding of God's

Word. He wanted to show the Catholic Church where

they were wrong in their teaching of God's word.

This did not make many members of the church very

happy. No one, especially a priest, wants to be

told that they've been worshiping wrong. They truly

believed that their practices were exactly the way

the Bible and God said they should be. In fact,

they wanted Martin to shut up and forget this

foolery of his.

Martin believed that he needed to pursue this issue

to the limit no matter what the cost to himself,

however, he soon found out that he was putting his

life on the line. Martin even had to go into hiding

in order to save his life. The church did not take

kindly to anyone who ‘disagreed' with them or who

‘stirred up trouble' with the local congregations and

the church was convinced that they had to stop Martin

from causing a altercation in their church.

Martin Luther The Great Reformer will enlighten the

reader as to all the trials, hardships, and accusations

that one has to endure in order to stand up for the

truth. This book is full of facts about that particular

era and how people thought and worshiped. This book

will inspire anyone who reads it to pursue more

information about Martin Luther and to learn more about

what the truth really is according to the Bible. It

will also enlighten you to the fact that you too can

persevere with God's help, no matter what others do

to you or what others may say, as long as you truly

believe in God's Word. I recommend this book very
