This is the story, from birth to death, of Martin Luther who headed a revolution that changed the world. From a small town in medieval Germany, the Reformation resulted in dramatic, sweeping change that still echoes today. Here is Luther’s story of adventure, courage, and faith told for the first time in graphic novel style. Scattered throughout the book are informational call-outs of key supporters and enemies of Luther including Frederick the Wise, Katherine von Bora, Charles IV, and many others. Also included is a comprehensive explanation of Luther’s Seal and an extensive history timeline that gives broad context to Luther’s life. As children and middle school children become increasingly visually literate, their reading habits change accordingly. This Luther biography will teach in a fun, comfortable format while providing an educational and appreciation of Luther and the Reformation. It’s perfect for classroom use. Author Susan K.
