Protestant Christians will be able to walk in the footsteps of Martin Luther, 500 years to the day from his heresy charges on Oct. 10, 1520. Ligonier Ministries will release the first episode of a new podcast, “Luther in Real Time.”
Because the podcast was created to provide a real-time experience of Luther’s journey from an anguished Augustinian monk to the great German Reformer, each new episode will be released on the five-hundredth anniversary of important moments in Luther’s life. This means that new episodes will be released on varying days of the week, though listeners can expect to hear a new episode every week beginning October 10.
“Our founder, Dr. R.C. Sproul, often reminded us of a lesson he learned from Martin Luther: every generation must declare with boldness and clarity the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and the supreme authority of the Bible,” said Chris Larson, president and CEO of Ligonier. :This new podcast, `Luther: In Real Time’, is unlike anything Ligonier has produced to date. Carefully researched, each episode draws listeners into the action of Luther’s life five centuries to the day.
“This production is not mere entertainment; it is a close look into defining moments for the Protestant Reformation. Church history provides vivid reminders of God’s faithfulness to His church, and this short period in Luther’s life was particularly full of dramatic twists and turns. We encourage Christians to listen with their families and to share this podcast with people of all ages so that as many people as possible can hear — in Luther’s own words — what Protestants are protesting and why it still matters today.”
A preview of the podcast is now available at LutherInRealTime.com. Beginning October 10, listeners can hear new episodes on Amazon Music, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, iHeartRadio, Pandora, RefNet, RSS, Spotify, Stitcher and TuneIn. More information is available at www.LutherInRealTime.com.
