On October 31, 1517, Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses (theological issues he wished to discuss with the church leaders of his time) to the church door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg, Germany. This decisive moment sparked the Reformation, returning the church to its primary focus on salvation by grace through faith, a gift of God given freely to weary sinners.
