About Martin Luther

Martin Luther (1483–1546) was a key figure in the Protestant Reformation and one of the most significant figures in Western history. Over the course of his life, he was a monk, a priest, a professor of biblical literature, a Reformer, a husband, and a father.

Luther is most noted for his 95 Theses (1517), in which he argues that indulgences are not acts of penance which can replace true repentance. In 1520, Pope Leo X and Holy Roman Emperor Charles V demanded that Luther retract all of his writings. Luther refused. He was subsequently excommunicated and declared an outlaw.

Luther has been both praised and vilified for what he preached and wrote. His translation of the Christian Bible into the vernacular greatly influenced the church. His works continue to impact all Christians and animate the movement that bears his name. His works are also represented in Martin Luther’s Basic Theological Writings and the Luther’s Works collection.

About John Nicholas Lenker

John Nicholas Lenker (1858–1929) was baptized as a Presbyterian, but after attending a Lutheran Sunday School and Bible study, he united with the Lutheran Church. He attended the Missionary Institute at Selinsgrove and then graduated from Wittenberg College and Wittenberg Theological Seminary. In 1880, he was ordained to ministry and served as the president of the American Lutheran Immigrant Missionary Society. He started two Lutheran congregations in Grand Island, Nebraska, and served as pastor for one of them, St. Paul’s English Lutheran.
