martin luther - his life and theology
Instructor: William B. McKee
Tuesdays, Jan. 28 - March 3
3:00-4:00 PM, Room 415/416
Martin Luther lived in a time of change as society emerged from the Middle Ages into the Renaissance. Church and state exerted influence on the day-to-day lives of people. Martin Luther was an ordinary person who was thrust forward as a leader in those times. We'll discuss how his life changed as guided by his conscience, including his involvement in the Protestant Reformation. We'll also reflect on how those same issues guide our conscience today as we deal with change in our contemporary society.
