In this Reformation anniversary year, there are a plethora of online resources to help people understand what happened and why it matters.
It cannot have escaped your attention that this month the Protestant churches are celebrating the 500th anniversary of the actions which began the movement we now know as the Reformation. Martin Luther may not actually have nailed his 95 theses to the door in Wittenberg, but whatever he did, God used to bring about an extraordinary revolution. Many people in our churches have only the haziest idea about what happened or why it matters, and this is the ideal time to help them understand more.
Here’s a round-up some of the best free online resources to help you do that. Next week we’ll have a post about some of the best books and other offline resources.
