FORT WAYNE, Ind. (CTSFW)—As part of the celebration of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, Concordia Theological Seminary (CTSFW), Fort Wayne, will host a free screening of Martin Luther: The Idea that Changed the World. The film will be shown on Sunday, March 19, at 4:00 p.m. in Sihler Auditorium on the CTSFW campus, 6600 N. Clinton St. Seating is limited, so free tickets must be reserved at CTSFW.NewLutherMovie.com. A preview of the movie is also available at this site. For those without Internet access, tickets may be reserved by calling 260.452.2204.

This is the first time in more than 60 years that Lutherans have made a feature-length film about Martin Luther and the Reformation. Filmed in historic locations across Europe, this movie brings Luther’s story to life with exquisite attention to detail. It’s a chance to strengthen your faith by revisiting the birth of Protestant Reformation and to share that experience with others.

The Rev. Dr. Benjamin Mayes, assistant professor of Historical Theology at CTSFW, will introduce the film and there will be a panel of professors to answer questions after the screening.
