Martin Luther

Simonetta Carr has translated several books from English into Italian and has written for newspapers and magazines around the world, including the Jordan Times, Bangkok Post, Arab-American Business, and Modern Reformation. She is the author of the Christian Biographies for Young Readers series, which includes John Calvin, Augustine of Hippo, and others.

From Reformation Heritage Books, Martin Luther is the latest in Simonetta Carr's Christian Biographies for Young Readers.

Five hundred years ago, a monk named Martin Luther wrote ninety-five questions, hoping to start a discussion about sin and repentance at the University of Wittenberg in Germany. In a few months those questions had stirred the nation; a few years later, the continent. Today we know that those questions changed the course of both the Western church and world history. In this volume for children, Simonetta Carr tells the compelling story of this father of the Protestant Reformation, tracing his quest for peace with God, his lifelong heroic stand for God’s truth, and his family life and numerous accomplishments. The Reformer’s greatest accomplishment, she writes, “has been his uncompromising emphasis on the free promise of the gospel.”

My Thoughts:
What a gift Carr has given parents in the Christian Biographies for Young Readers.  This series is invaluable for parents who wish to teach their children about these great men and women of God who have shaped the spread of the gospel across the years.  Her latest offering highlighting the life and ministry of Martin Luther is excellent in quality of information about this great man of God.
This beautiful hardcover book is engaging with pictures and information;  the arrangement is aesthetically inviting.  The book includes a quick reference timeline and portions of Luther's Small Catechism.  The pages have the subject titles on the edges for quick thumb reference.  This quality bound hardback book with some 63 pages would be an excellent resource to any homeschool curriculum or for homes where parents strive to educate their children in the Christian faith and those who shaped the spread of the good news.
