Though we have featured quotes from Martin Luther (1483-1546) a few times on Managing Monday, on this the eve of the 500th anniversary of Luther posting his 95 theses on the church door in Wittenberg on 31 October 1517, it only seems right to hear from him again. Here are some Luther quotes we have not yet considered… I have no use for cranks who despise music, because it is a gift of God. Next after theology, I give to music the highest place and the greatest honour. Martin Luther If our Lord is permitted to create nice large pike and good Rhine wine, presumably I may be allowed to...

As the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation draws near (it is usually dated from Luther posting his 95 theses on the church door in Wittenberg on 31 October, 1517), it is worth asking if we are now primarily protestants (from protestors) or reformers. The Protestant Reformation involved both protest and reform. It was a protest against a corrupt religious system, and some of its particular practices, such as the sale of indulgences.

As the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation draws near, it is only appropriate that we spend a few weeks looking at the insights of one the leading figure of the Reformation, Martin Luther (1483-1546). I must listen to the Gospel.

As 2017 marks the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, it is only appropriate that we spend a few weeks looking at the insights of one the leading figure of the Reformation, Martin Luther (1483-1546). I know not the way God leads me, but well do I know my guide – Martin Luther So when the devil throws your sin in your face and declares that you deserve death and hell, tell him this: “I admit that I deserve death and hell, what of it? For I know One who suffered and made satisfaction on my behalf. His name is Jesus Christ, Son of God, and where He is there I shall be...
