This film (not the 2004 release) depicts a man who was searching for answers in scripture, and became convinced of what God expects of us. He was so much a scholar and so persistent, he translated the entire Bible into German so all the people could read it. He went on to write prolifically bout the scriptures and the church. The high point of this film is when he faces the judgment of the church and the Roman government and tells them that at whatever peril to himself, he cannot and will not recant any of his writings and statements.
He was a model for all Christians. He stood on his convictions and with God's truth.
Anyone interested in why the reformation took place should see this film. Luther was not the only reformer. There were others before and since, but Luther has his name branded on the Reformation. Calvin and others took Luther's lead and used his situation to further their own reformations. Luther broke the ice pack and opened the door!
