TOP REVIEWS FROM LUTHER AND THE WEST
This is a well-planned course that I learned a whole lot from. I was curious about Luther and church history to begin with, and this course satisfied that curiosity.
Excellent course covering the complete historical, political, and spiritual development of Martin Luther and his influence on Western intellectual thought.
With looking up the different topics on YouTube, I found this class a great overview and basics. Very straight forward basic class touching the basics.
I really enjoyed the course, and think it is very well thought out and paced. I appreciate the access to additional reading materials.
