2017 is the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. (That’s if we’re basing it on 1517, the traditionally-understood official start of the Reformation. There’s a case to be made that it started earlier, but that’s neither here nor there for the purposes of this post.)
My last post here announced a new podcast from myself and Jonathan McCormick. It is called “Saints Gone Before,” and is available on a variety of podcast apps. You can find it on Podbean, Google Play, iTunes, Blubrry, Player FM, and any podcast app that aggregates from those (like Podcast Addict). It is an audiobook style podcast where we read Christian texts from across the history of the church. We release a new episode every Monday. The most recent episodes began our presentation of Reformation-era texts. The latest is our first text from Martin Luther, the best-known of the Protestant Reformers.
If you have any interest in that period in history, I hope you’ll give these episodes a listen. You can either subscribe like you would with any other podcast, or you can find the full list laid out on this page of my website.
