MARTIN LUTHER - A Man chosen by God
Review by Cardiphonia on 01/04/21 review stating MARTIN LUTHER - A Man chosen by God
With Jan Hus, Bohemian reformer, and Gerolamo Savonarola, Italian reformer, God chose Martin Luther, a German reformer, to bring the printed, living scriptures, the word of God, written, according to the Westminster Confession of Faith, 1646, into its place as the authoratative word of God, (ibid.) revealing Jesus Christ in all His Divine and eternal glory. Another Luther is needed today.

Martin Luther, Theologian and Reformer
Review by Mark M. on 07/17/20 review stating Martin Luther, Theologian and Reformer
I appreciated being kept informed about the status of the shipment. I was extremely glad (both my wife and I are LUTHERANS) that so many people had ordered this DVD. Both of the hour-long programs on KCPT our PBS station in Kansas City, were excellent!! Thanks for your emails notifying me of its status - and it arrived last week in very good shape. I have watched it already, and it is an extremely well-done film, especially with the commentaries by the experts from Union Theol. Seminary, my alma- mater for my masters degree in sacred music, as well las Arizona and Englalnd. Thanks for airing this film, and for making it available on DVD. Thank you! Mark L.

Church corruption And the Reformation
Review by Lombardico on 07/17/20 review stating Church corruption And the Reformation
Well worth spending a couple of hours watching this dramatic recreation of Martin Luthers life. He comes to life as a real human being in this high quality production. Obviously time limitations resulted in a glossing over of some of the most controversial aspects of his ideas and teaching. Martin Luthers contribution to the scorge of anti-semitism is given less than two minutes. A hugh oversight by the producers. The DVD motivated me to read more about his theological contributions to Christianity.

History at its finest hour!
Review by Michael on 07/17/20 review stating History at its finest hour!
Went to a Catholic school up to the seventh grade and convinced my parents to free me from their abuse. Had the good fortune to meet with my fellow class mates at a Senior High reunion. The three of us no longer practice that religion, did not go into the reason why at lunch. After all these years my convictions were right but still have a void left by the Catholic Church, thanks for the program.

Much better understanding of the political arena and the necessary reform steps taken by Martin Luther, who was a reluctant participant, but held to his beliefs.
