Here I Stand: Martin Luther


It is claimed that there have been more books written about Martin Luther than anyone else other than Jesus Christ. In those lists pundits compile about who were the most influential in shaping our modern world, the name Martin Luther inevitably shows up near the top, usually in the top ten. He is one of those few who can be proclaimed indisputably a “hinge of history.”

Dove Review

Martin Luther came from a long line of hard working peasants. You will experience many beautiful landmarks and see still images and artwork throughout the retelling of Martin Luther’s life as well as the Legacy he left behind. T. N. Mohan is your host and he returns to Germany to take you on a very compelling, detailed look at Martin Luther’s life from birth to his death. Mohan digs into details of Luther’s writings, his trial and shows how his followers were threatened with the loss of everything if they continued in Luther’s teachings.

He was kidnapped by a friend and disguised to be unrecognizable to protect him. It was the 10 most productive months of his life, Luther claimed. Luther translated the Bible in German, created the Catechism, designed the Order of Worship and wrote over 35 Hymns. He preached at the local church and continued his massive writings as he could. You will get a unique look at many famous writers and theologians as you follow the track of his life.

You get a great bonus feature that explores landmarks Luther visited as they look today. This movie receives the Dove “Faith Friendly” Seal for ages 12 and older.
