The Protestant Revolution
October 2017 marks the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, when Martin Luther nailed a list of his grievances with the Catholic Church (commonly called "The 95 Theses") to the door of All Saints’ Church in Wittenberg, Germany.
In the documentary-style film The Protestant Revolution, written and narrated by Trent Horn, you will be introduced to Martin Luther and the events that shaped his thinking and led him to “protest” against his Catholic Faith.
The film investigates common myths about the Reformation and the key ideas Luther espoused that resulted in the breaking away of believers and the establishment of non-Catholic Christian religions—ideas still firmly at the heart of modern Protestant theology. These include:
- Sola scriptura (the Bible is all you need in order to believe in God and faithfully follow Christ)
- Sola fide (all you need is faith in God, and works are not necessary for salvation)
- The canon of Scripture
- The different conceptions of tradition and the role it plays in salvation
Along the way you’ll hear from top apologists Tim Staples, Jimmy Akin, Karlo Broussard, and Steve Weidenkopf as they unpack the misguided ideas of Luther, leaving you with a clearer understanding of your Protestant brothers and sisters, better equipped to engage them about what separates us and what unites us.
