This year marks the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther posting his Ninety-five Theses on the Wittenberg church door. This event is seen as a trigger for the Protestant Reformation, and the Society has produced a range of items to mark the occasion.
Two special editions of the new Compact Westminster Reference Bible have been printed. These commemorative editions feature special bindings bearing the text, 'The just shall live by faith', as well as information on the Reformation and a timeline of important Bibles springing from the period. You can choose between two binding styles: the hardback edition with its colourful pictorial cover, or the leather edition bound in a luxurious brown Meriva calfskin leather with special presentation box. These are available while stocks last.
The Society has also produced a pictorial timeline of the Protestant Reformation. This new timeline focuses on Bibles translated during the early years of the Reformation, together with key events of those times. It is in two equal sections and has an overall size of 410mm x 1808mm (16 inches x 71 inches).
A new booklet by Peter Hallihan, The Protestant Reformation: Returning to the Word of God, focuses on the interaction and impact of the Bible on events before and after 1517 - the year that Martin Luther posted his Ninety-five Theses on the Wittenberg church door. The booklet can be read online, and printed copies are available free of charge. Another article, The Bible and the Reformation by Adrian Stoutjesdyk, has been written for young people and children, this should be available in September 2017.
In addition to these items, we have produced a Reformation Bookmark to mark the event, which can be purchased from our website.
