Martin Luther Renegade and Prophet: A Book Discussion
March 26, 11:30am-1:00pm
$14 preregistered/prepaid. Includes lunch. Registration required by March 19.
Lynda Roper’s book is a magnificent study of one of history’s most compelling and decisive figures. In 1517, Martin Luther nailed 95 Theses on the church door thus beginning his “public life”. Researched for more than 10 years, Ms. Roper sketches Luther as a complicated founding father of Protestant Reformation. This biography offers a fresh and deeply revealing study of the man who somewhat reluctantly divided a continent. His intellectual assault on Catholicity transformed Christianity and changed world history. Join us for a fascinating discussion.
Facilitated by Rochester Franciscan Sister Claren Sellner, an avid reader, and Suzann Carrillo, a frequent book club member who has been exploring grace in all of Luther’s works.
