Being reformational

Today is All Hallows Eve and marks the anniversary of Martin Luther’s nailing of his “95 Theses” against indulgences on the door of the castle church in Wittenberg and so providing the spark that set off the chain of events which we today call the Protestant Reformation. It’s a great and glorious anniversary and it reminds me of some of the things that are available from the Bucer Institute which will give you a better grasp of its significance.

First, are Tim LeCroy’s lectures at our Fall “Special Session” on the Middle Ages which were given last Saturday. These talks will give you a grasp of the period and some invaluable background to give a better understanding of what happened after Luther posted his theses in 1517. They should be available very soon for downloading.

Second, you can also obtain the lectures Steven Wedgeworth and I gave on “Romanism & Orthodoxy” in our first Bucer class of the year. The CDs are available here and the MP3 downloads are available here.

And all this reminds me to tell you that you should register for our 2010 Pastors Conference which will address the topic “The Necessity of the Reformation” — you can do so here.

Happy Reformation Day/All Hallows Eve!
