Editorial Reviews

Heretic... Child of Satan... Revolutionary... Four hundred years ago these words were used to describe Martin Luther. But what is the real story behind the man who dared to defy the established church? Martin Luther - Heretic reveals the truth about the man whose ideas were the basis of the Reformation and the Protestant faith. This dramatic film recreates the tumultuous 16th century and discloses the personal struggles of Luther - a monk plagued by self-doubt, fear, and emotional torment. It follows the 10-year spiritual journey that transforms Luther from a monk, fearful of God, into a man assured of his salvation - able to take a singular stand against the established church. Coproduced in Europe by Family Films and the British Broadcasting Corporation, this entertaining and thought-provoking drama features acclaimed British actor Jonathan Pryce. Pryce conveys more than the physical and mental anguish Luther experienced. He also captures the essence of Luther's faith in God - the faith that ultimately enabled Luther to withstand denunciation, excommunication, and the threat of death. Martin Luther - Heretic is more than the story of one man. It chronicles the birth of a movement that changed the face of Christianity forever. And, it's a tribute to every person who has ever dared to fight for his beliefs.

Format: VHS Tape
This is the best dramatization of Martin Luther I have seen. Although apparently low-budget, it is well acted and scripted. It centers on the main issue of Luther's life and the Reformation: the gospel. It does an excellent job of describing the theological issues at stake but in a way accessible to nearly everyone. I've watched it repeatedly and screened it repeatedly for my church and church history classes. It was made by the BBC in 1983 for the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther's birth. Only recently have used versions been available in the US. It's worthy of wide distribution.
