Here We Stand by Nikolaus Satelmajer, Michael W. Campbell
Five hundred years ago the world experienced one of its great turning points. On October 31, 1517 an unknown Augustinian monk in an obscure university posted ninety-five propositions to a church door in Wittenberg, Germany. His ideas challenged Roman Catholic docrtine and practice. The action itself was not remarkable. To the contrary, it was a common academic practice of the time for scholars to publically post their positions as an invitation to debate. That was all Luther expected to happen. But Luther`s Ninety-Five Theses soon jumped the fence separating the academic world from that of personal Christian piety and politics, and they ignited a revolution–a Reformation. They transformed not only the Western world but eventually affected the entire planet through worldwide mission.
Although separated in time by centuries, Seventh-day Adventists see themselves as heirs of the Protestant Reformation started by Martin Luther 500 years ago. This volume explores the various facets and contours of Luther and compares them with Seventh-day Adventism.
Over 25 scholars from throught the world have come together to create this one-of-a-kind volume exploring:
Echoes of Luther in Adventist theology
Eschatology and politics
Dialogue and legacy
