Read by Jonathan Lange

(5 stars; 14 reviews)

Early in the course of the Reformation (1520) Martin Luther penned a trilogy of foundational documents addressing the German Nobility, the Church and the Christian. "To the Christian Nobility" appeared first. In it, Luther identifies and attacks the three walls with which the papacy insulates itself from reformation. Next, he discusses three areas that need to be addressed by a council. Finally, he offers 27 articles respecting reforms needed in Christendom. (Summary by Jonathan Lange) (3 hr 11 min)

Christian

(5 stars)

Excellent work of prophetical proportions. Every Christian that seeks to genuinely worship Christ in spirit and truth should listen to these works of Martin Luther. His genius in these writings, during an age of utter ecclesiastical darkness (1520's), can be nothing less than from above.
