Martin Luther’s Story
I’ve never listed one of my own posts among the Best of the Best. But I can “get away with it” today since: a) it’s not really me—it’s Martin Luther, b) it’s four posts in one, and c) it’s realted to Reformation Sunday. The four posts share a dramatic reading that I present in character as Martin Luther telling his story of salvation by grace alone through faith alone. To read Part 1, click on Unable to Satisfy God. To read Part 2, click on A Spiritual Pauper. To read Part 3, click Clothed by Faith. To read Part 4, click Clothed by Christ.

Read his post and follow the links at Contemporary Hymns.
