Listen: Author says Martin Luther legend misrepresents the real man

Glenn Beck Radio Program

Christians have heard the famous story of Martin Luther nailing the 95 Theses to the door of the closest Catholic Church, kicking off the Protestant Reformation in 1517. But the real story is more complex, according to New York Times-bestselling author Eric Metataxas.

“He was a humble, obedient monk,” Metataxas said. “This was not a firebrand or a rebel of any stripe whatsoever.”

Metataxas, who has written “Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy” and other books about great people throughout history, wanted to get a real look at Luther and his motive for pointing out corruption in the Catholic Church.

Listen to the full clip (above) for more about Luther as we get ready for the 500th anniversary of the Reformation.
