Martin LutherThis former German priest became one of the leading figures of the Protestant Reformation. Luther taught that salvation is not earned by good deeds or by purchasing indulgences but only by the grace of God through Jesus Christ.
This formidable theological giant also confronted issues such as greed and the necessity of interpreting scripture through thorough exegetical study informed by the Holy Spirit. Luther provided future generations of theologians with the radical concept of the God from Below, the God who has special concern for the poor and oppressed.

"Al Staggs powerfully conveys Luther's convictions about justification by grace. Furthermore, as Stagg's Luther critiques the greed and conspicuous consumption that the reformer witnessed in sixteenth-century German, the audience hears a challenge that still applies to Christians today."

Joy A. Schroeder, Associate Professor of Religion and Church History, Trinity Lutheran Seminary and Capital University

"Rev. Staggs portrayal of Martin Luther was truly a delight as he did a marvelous job of offering insights into Luther's character, theology and faith, all with humor and grace.

I was impressed at the scholarship, accuracy and passion within the performance, and appreciated how my church members were both educated and inspired. I highly recommend Rev. Staggs for local congregational gatherings, Seminary classes/seminars, and Reformation festivals."
