The Reconnect 10-9-17 | Interview with Eric Metaxas: Martin Luther, Reformer and World Changer

At the end of this month, we will celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. How do the ideas put forth half a millennium ago still influence today? to discuss this, we are joined by Eric Metaxas, national radio host and best-selling author on his recent project: Martin Luther: The Man Who Rediscovered God and Changed the World.

As Eric points out, Martin Luther was just one of the reformers, but his ability to communicate broke through the systems of the day, with historic implications. He communicated in such a way to get beyond the elites (who primarily wrote in Latin) and into the public square. Coupled with the printing press, Luther’s writing was compelling and accessible so that elites could no longer squash the revolutionary ideas and control the flow of information. His story still has much to teach the Church today.
