Today marks the 500th anniversary of the event that sparked the Protestant Reformation. 

On Oct. 31, 1517, Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the wooden doors of a Roman Catholic church in Wittenberg, Germany. In his theses, Luther, a Catholic monk, attacked the church’s corruption and indulgences-for-sale system. Shares pastor Kevin DeYoung at The Gospel Coalition:

One of the things we must never forget to say is that the Reformation mercifully allowed fearful sinners to have a new kind of relationship with God. The Reformation reminded God’s people that they can have direct access to God through Christ. It re-centered the church on the lavish, scandalous good news of the cross.

Counseling Under the Cross Book!

To commemorate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, Bob Kellemen penned his latest book: Counseling Under the Cross: How Martin Luther Applied the Gospel to Daily Life. Below are links to wonderful free resources from the Kellemen, who also is a biblical counselor, professor, and pastor.

He says,

Martin Luther not only reformed theology; his understanding of the gospel reformed daily Christian living, biblical counseling, pastoral counseling, one-another ministry, and soul care.

Through Counseling Under the Cross, you can learn how Luther richly, relevantly, robustly, and relationally applied the gospel to suffering, sin, sanctification, and our search for peace with God. And throughout, Kellemen shares lively vignettes, real-life stories, and direct quotes from Luther. They also help equip you to apply the gospel to yourself and others—finding hope and help in Christ alone.

Here, then, are the resources as well as a link to the book.
