Product Description

Her husband’s story is well known: Martin Luther’s nailing of 95 theses on the door of Wittenberg’s castle church on October 31, 1517, was a turning point in history. Yet it was his dear wife Katie whom Luther called the “Morning Star of Wittenberg.” After a dramatic escape from a convent in Catholic territory, former nun Katharine von Bora married Wittenberg’s famous preacher and was a remarkable helper and companion to the German Reformer. A courageous lady, a loving wife and mother, and an able, selfless steward of vast responsibilities, Katharine Luther is a sterling example of what a woman, by God’s grace, can be. This beautifully illustrated storybook brings to life this exciting part of history for readers of all ages to enjoy. The book includes an engaging map of ‘Katherine’s Germany’ as well as a detailed Glossary of Terms for further learning.
