A Reformation Day Giveaway When Lightning Struck! The Story of Martin Luther

Reformation Day Giveaway

 October 31 is known as "Reformation Day." On October 31, 1517 Martin Luther nailed his ninety-five theses to a church door in Wittenburg, Germany. This action provoked a debate that resulted in what is 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 have the privilege of reading and reviewing this historical fiction novel and will share my thoughts with you in early November.

  2. "Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree."

  3. This is a great quote that still rings true to this day (maybe more so): "I am afraid that the schools will prove the very gates of hell, unless they diligently labor in explaining the Holy Scriptures and engraving them in the heart of the youth."
