Here I Stand: Free Download

Most know October 31 is Halloween.  Few are aware that October 31 is also Reformation Day.  That’s the day many protestants celebrate the Reformation.  If you are an evangelical Christian, and not a Catholic, your church would likely not be possible were it not for the stance Martin Luther took hundreds of years ago in defense of the doctrines of grace.  (And, Martin Luther King would likely have been named something else, as his parents named him after the famed German theologian).

For a limited time—through Oct 31, 2010–you can download for free a stirring rendition of Martin Luther’s arguments entitled “Here I Stand.”  Or, if you read this after the free download period has expired, you can buy it.

In the late afternoon of April 18, 1521, in the city of Worms, Germany, Martin Luther, a 37 year-old Catholic monk was called to defend himself before Charles the Fifth, the Holy Roman Emperor. The speech he delivered that day, Here I Stand, marked the beginning of the Reformation, a critical turning point in Christian history, that decisively altered the spiritual map of the world.

In this recording, Max McLean introduces the events leading up to the Diet of Worms: Martin Luther’s prayer the night before he delivered his speech; Luther’s stirring defense; the Catholic church’s rebuttal; and, Luther’s final heartfelt response.
