Martin Luther (1483-1546) is well known for his part in the protest against corruption in the Church. Even more important was Martin Luther’s work of translating the Scriptures for the German peoples (1522-34), which had a great influence on Europe. Luther resolved to put the Bible into natural and forceful German so that it would speak to the hearts of all. “My wish to God,” Luther said, ” is that this book were in every language, and in every home.” His Bible Translation work was so well done that his translation of the Bible would still be in use hundreds of years later.
