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.

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

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
