Reformation Day Giveaway

I've always enjoyed learning about Martin Luther.  So much about his life and the times he lived in is just fascinating.  I know I had family in Germany in 1517, and we've traced my family tree nearly that far back.

I always wonder what led them to become Lutheran.

I know they were. 

The idea of a biography of Luther, that I could use as a read-aloud with my teens had a very strong appeal for me.  In spite of how completely crazy my life is right now, I knew I wanted to do this.  Watch for a review in another couple of weeks!



October 31 commemorates what has become known as "Reformation Day." Martin Luther’s nailing of his ninety-five theses to a church door on October 31, 1517 in Wittenburg, Germany, provoked a debate that resulted in what we now call the Protestant Reformation. As the “Father of the Reformation”, Martin Luther is a vital figure in Church history. His sacrifice and willingness to wage battle against the spiritual, religious, and political powers of his medieval world allowed Christians throughout time to embrace the truth of salvation by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone as explained by Scripture alone. Author Danika Cooley has written Luther's story for young people in her new book, When Lightning Struck!: The Story of Martin Luther.

I am German on my dad's side, though I do not think they were Lutheran. However, I was raised Lutheran, which stems from my Scandinavian heritage.

I cannot and will not recant anything, for to go against conscience is neither right nor safe. Here I stand, I can do no other, so help me God. Amen.
