Today we are celebrating Martin Luther’s birthday who was born on this day in 1483. Happy Birthday, Martin!
Luther forever changed Western civilization when he nailed his 95 Theses to the doors of Wittenburg Church in open dissent of Pope Leo X and the Catholic Church.
His defiant act that day on October 31, 1517 marked the official start of the Protestant Reformation, which we celebrated on this blog for the entire month of October.
In case you missed it, here are some of my favorite posts on Martin Luther from last month:
Also, there are many books written by or about Martin Luther, so let me suggest you start with:

Again, Happy Birthday to you, Martin Luther!
