How a Few Simple Inventions Changed the Written World

Isaac has recently been doing some writing for the Live the Adventure Letter, and they just published his article on Martin Luther and the Printing Press. Have a look at how world-changing inventions didn’t actually change the word until the right men came along with the right ideas. The story of paper, the printing press, and the Reformation is also a good reminder that everything, even simple mechanical inventions, arrive in God’s sovereignly-appointed time.  One of the reasons I love being married to Isaac is that I am always learning things from him: interesting history, cool technology, and real life theology, and this article is no exception.
