For Immediate Release

Given the upcoming quincentenary of Martin Luther’s posting the 95 Theses upon the Wittenberg Door in Germany, which sparked the Reformation and convulsed Europe, publishers have been pouring out new books.

However, few of them have met with the success of Martin E. Marty’s October 31, 1517: Martin Luther and the Day that Changed the World (May 2016 / Paraclete Press / ISBN 978-1612616568 / Hardcover / $19.99), which has already sold in excess of 10,000 copies.

A 4th printing has been ordered by the Press and author Marty, who no longer travels, is giving a rare talk on the book October 18th, 2017 at The Hank Center for the Catholic Intellectual Heritage at Loyola University in Chicago (just a couple of miles from the author’s home in Hancock Tower). Dr. Marty will be interviewed at this all day conference by Paraclete Press’s incoming publisher and editor-in-chief, Jon M. Sweeney.
