I would recommend this book to kids and adults ages 13 and up. It is a great book because, it tells the life of Martin Luther and, it explains the progression of how he reformed the Catholic church. I marked some really great pages in this book that i may never forget about Martin Luther. On Chapter Two, Luther was questioning his salvation. He was in the Catholic church telling himself that something wasn't right. That is when he decided to change the Catholic church. I think this is a really ...more

Martin Luther: The Courage to Seek is the fifth book I’ve read in the Heroes of the Faith series.

Maybe it was because I read an edited edition, or maybe it was because the author spent a lot of ...more

This book was horribly written. Even my college-professor dad thought that it was really bad. Very hard to read, dry, boring, should not be a children's book. It has been taken off our school shelf. Very bad book. I don't know how much I can emphasize that. Very. Bad. Book. Don't read.

So he left the monastery and started the Reformation of the Church, which would follow more of God and less of man. Martin later married and had a children, survived ...more

A brief biography of the great Martin Luther. It is an honest account and no attempt is made to glorify Luther with even his weaknesses being addressed. The Luther story is truly inspiring in that he took on the mighty Roman Catholic church and the Pope. It also shows the liberating power of the Word of God. His conviction from reading The Bible changed not just his life but almost the entire world and continues to do so. Recommended reading for a quick understanding of the life and times of ...more
