October 31, 1517: Martin Luther and the Day That Changed the World
By Martin Marty
Released in time for the 500th Anniversary of Martin Luther's 95 Theses, and the Protestant Reformation. This is an invitation to a party, one which commemorates events that began five hundred years ago in Europe and have consequences throughout the world today. My title suggests that this book is about two things, a "heart" and a "soul." Yet the chapters that follow deal with relations between the two, the first belonging to Martin Luther and those in his legacy, and the second to the Roman Catholic Church and those who belong to its community or communion.
