Martin LutherThe fiery monk who sparked the Reformation
Standing up for truth in the face of corruption, and The 95 Theses
In a world ruled by a corrupt and greedy church, all it took was one little nail, one well-written parchment, and one sharp-tongued monk to turn everything upside down! Martin Luther didn’t mean to spark the Reformation with his 95 Theses, but his realization that salvation comes through faith and not works ignited the revolution that changed the world. As Pope Leo X hounds and fights him at every turn, will Luther have the courage to stand strong—even to death? Find out in this episode of the Torchlighters! Read more about Martin Luther, and the 95 theses that upheld a neglected truth. Also, be sure to download our 5 Solas coloring page for children!

What People are Saying
[The Torchlighters’] Luther is no firebrand superhero: he looks grim and burdened while famously nailing his “Ninety-Five Theses” to the door of a church, and when blindsided by an extreme threat, he appears vulnerable and frightened. In other words… Luther is not a two-dimensional character, but rather a deeply committed human figure. Recommended.
We wanted something in our home that would enrich our children’s lives and give them missionary hearts, and these movies do that perfectly. We have recommended them to all the families we know who have children.
Many of my [students], even though they’re high school age, have expressed how much the Torchlighter series has meant to them. It has motivated them to pursue the Lord more, to rest more in him, to share him more with others. How wonderful!
