What We Can Learn about the End of the World from the Reformer
Many are of the opinion that a new era began with the great Reformer Martin Luther. The Middle Ages had ended and a new age had dawned. That was never Luther’s own reckoning. Throughout his life, he was convinced that “the last day is at the door,” “it is the last hour,” “certainly all is at an end,” and the earth “would not last another hundred years.” He believed he was living in the end time and thought of his Reformation as a sign of the last days.
Why the Reformer was of this opinion is the theme of this book. There are some things that we Christians today, several hundred years later, can learn and benefit from the “near expectation” of Martin Luther.
