About the author

William r. russell.

WILLIAM R. RUSSELL, scholar and pastor, works for the Lutheran World Federation in Geneva, Switzerland. He coordinates LWF's "Lutheran Confessions' Project," a global initiative to interpret the most significant aspects of Martin Luther's legacy as resources for the present work of the church. With a Ph.D. from the University of Iowa and an M.Div. from Luther Seminary, Russell has authored/edited 11 books and 100's of articles and reviews.

He is drawn to study Martin Luther by the Reformer's robust and honest approach to life and faith. Martin's manifest faults and limitations show up in the Reformer's work alongside his transformational and enduring contributions.

A sought-after speaker, he has addressed audiences from Canada to Brazil, Malaysia to Puerto Rico, Oslo to Cape Town.

His wife, Ann Svennungsen (bishop of the Minneapolis Area Synod, ELCA), and he have three grown children and four grandchildren.

martin luther 95 theses book

Did Martin Luther wield his hammer on the Wittenberg church door on October 31, 1517?

Did he even post the Ninety-five Theses at all?

This collection of documents sheds light on the debate surrounding Luther's actions and the timing of his writing and his request for a  disputation on the indulgence issue. The primary documents in this book include the theses, their companion sermon ("A Sermon on Indulgence and Grace", 1518), a chronological arrangement of letters pertinent to the theses, and selections from Luther's Table Talk that address the Ninety-five Theses. A final section contains Luther's recollections, which offer today's reader the reformer's own views of the Reformation and the Ninety-five Theses.

Martin Luther's Ninety-Five Theses

Second edition.

To combat abuses in the church of his day, a young German monk drafted nearly one hundred propositions for public debate. Martin Luther posted these theses on the church door in Wittenberg, an action that helped to give birth to the Reformation.

Many people have heard of the Ninety-Five Theses , but few have read it. Yet it is a crucial text—a bold and stirring challenge to one of the largest political and ecclesiastical machines this world has ever seen. This complete reproduction includes an introduction and extensive annotations to explain the context and meaning of a short, simple work that changed the course of history.
