Dr. Mary Jane Haemig easily takes the seemingly boring and turns it into WOW! And that’s exactly what you can expect as she opens up two more of Luther’s most influential works turning 500 in 2020! Last spring, she unlocked the theological treasures Freedom of a Christian and Treatise on Good Works. This fall, she will delve first into Appeal to the Christian Nobility, Luther’s appeal to the German princes to work actively for the reform of the church for the sake of the faith. Next, she will explore Babylonian Captivity of the Church, Luther’s entreaty to reconsider the sacramental Christian life, which he argues has been distorted for the papacy’s own purposes and power. Written in the midst of growing tensions over the authority and power of the papacy, these powerful and pivotal Reformation writings put Luther himself in peril. Make the time to come–you won’t be sorry!
