Luther: His Life, His Path, His Legacy — This comprehensive documentary traces the footsteps of the great Reformer and reflects upon the places that have become inseparably connected with his name. The program features stunning dramatic footage from the 2003 theatrical film, "Luther" along with interviews with experts discussing his life and work. Also includes an interview with Joseph Fiennes and others involved in the "Luther" production. Widescreen.
Calvin, Zwingli, and Brother Klaus — John Calvin, Ulrich Zwingli, and Brother Klaus (Niklaus von Flüe) were three very different men who shaped the Christian faith in Switzerland. John Calvin was as an intellectual giant of the Reformation, Ulrich Zwingli was a humble priest who brought reform to the church and died in battle, and Brother Klaus was a mystic who left everything to seek God in the wilderness. In comparing and contrasting these three figures, we see how the practice of the faith changed in Switzerland in the late Middle Ages. These changes would ultimately impact the entire world.
John Hus: A Journey of No Return — 14th century Czech priest and scholar John Hus is considered one of the first Protestant reformers. His interpretation of scripture and his bold stand against church corruption would strongly influence Martin Luther a century later. Hus spent his last days as a prisoner in Constance on charges of heresy. This historically based documentary produced for Czech television features outstanding dramatized scenes that reveal Hus’s humanity and depict his unwavering commitment to God’s mercy and justice.
Knox — Presented by Scottish actor Phillip Todd, “Knox” takes another look at the life and legacy of one of the church’s great reformers. Follow in the footsteps of John Knox as he makes his epic journey from Catholic priest to a passionate Protestant preacher facing down the most famous Scottish queen of all time. Incorporating dramatic animations and interviews with leading experts, the story of John Knox is brought to you as you’ve never seen it before. Widescreen. Optional English subtitles.
A Man Named Martin, Part 1 — This documentary will examine the life and teaching of this great reformer. The program gives important historical background and explains the key doctrines expounded by Luther: With tenacity and bravery, Martin Luther inspired a Reformation that reverberates throughout the centuries. Also includes a five part Bible study version. Widescreen. Optional English Subtitles.
A Man Named Martin, Part 2 — In A Man Named Martin—Part 2: The Moment, viewers will witness the interplay of personalities and events that led to the Protestant Reformation. From Luther’s inner struggles of conscience and faith to his call for debate with the Pope to his scathing rebuke of erroneous church practice, this installment examines the semi-scriptural and oft-times unethical teachings and doctrines of the late Medieval Church and how Luther addressed them. A cast of scholars and professional church workers share their expertise on the cultural and religious milieu in which Luther operated. A discussion guide, complete with numerous Internet links and helpful questions, assists viewers toward a deeper understanding of this critical period in the life of Christ’s church on earth. A supplementary text, The Reformation Twelve, gives viewers a look at the prominent figures who shared the religious stage in early 16th-century Europe. DVD includes both the 65-minute television version and a three-part Bible study version with PDF guides and optional English subtitles.
