Martin Luther’s life was too exciting not to be written for teens and younger readers! In this fast-paced, action-packed novel of Martin Luther’s life, teen readers (and more than a few adults!) will be introduced to a fascinating time when princes ruled Europe and knights roamed the countryside. They’ll learn about a time when powerful forces lined up against each other and believing the wrong thing could get you killed. When Lightning Struck! is far more than just an adventure story, of course. It also tells a theological story. Drawing carefully from Luther’s own words, this book introduces readers to a kindred spirit who struggled with what knowing God through Scripture means for daily life. They will understand what was at stake and how powerfully liberating Luther’s idea of grace through faith was—in his time and in ours! In crisp, enjoyable prose, author Danika Cooley conveys both the drama and the meaning of the Reformation for younger readers like no one before her!

On 31 October 1517 a lone monk pushed his way through the crowds milling around the streets of Wittenberg, a small university town in eastern Germany, and made his way towards the church. Arriving at the church door, he nailed to it a list of ninety-five propositions, or theses, in a formal gesture inviting the townspeople to a public debate. At the time very few people took much notice of his actions, but within a few weeks people throughout Europe were discussing the contents of those theses and a chain of events had been set in motion which would have profound effects for the whole of Western Europe, and beyond, for centuries to come. That monk was Martin Luther. 'Fresh and fast-moving, Jim Cromarty's account of the life and influence of the great Reformer brings Martin Luther out from the pages of the history books, portraying his warm, vibrant personality and unwavering faith. Packed with detail, A Mighty fortress is our God lays an excellent foundation for further study of the Reformation period and Luther's own testimony, which remains as relevant now as it ever was. Not only is this book valuable as an introduction to Martin Luther's life, but it also serves as a reminder of those cardinal doctrines of the faith which can alone transform the lives of men and women today.' Faith Cook 'Jim Cromarty's rendition of Luther sings sweetly. Though clearly aware of critical scholarship, Cromarty has written a narrative to entice a delight. The story is ever fresh, written in a lively, engaging and, at times, enchanting style. Luther never fails to fascinate, encourage and bring prayers of thanks for God's deliverance from the soul tyranny of medieval Rome. Cromarty's story unleashesLuther in all his strength and sweetness and keeps the reader absorbed in the drama with its tensions and celebrations.' Tom Nettles

You've heard about the Pilgrims, but have you read the original story? Here is the dramatic true story of the Plymouth Pilgrims as told by an eyewitness to their lives: their persecutions, secret meetings, angry negotiations, religious disputes, savage storms, kidnaping and sabotage, fear and faith, and their desperate struggle to survive. This is William Bradford's own story-the Plymouth Pilgrim thrust into the leadership of a struggling colony. His 400-year-old story is now carefully paraphrased for twenty-first century readers. IN THIS BOOK YOU WILL FIND: * A timeline of crucial historical events leading up to the Plymouth settlement. * Chapter questions for study, discussion, and reflection. * Maps and illustrations unique to this book. * Obscure historical references clarified within the text as part of the story. * The list of Mayflower passengers grouped into families. * Archaic language paraphrased into a clear, dramatic first-person account. * Adherence to the content, convictions, and chronology of Bradford's journal. This fresh retelling of the Pilgrim's true story concludes with their first full year in the New World, thereby encompassing all the events that fascinate us most: from their persecutions in England, to their dangerous ocean voyage, their first encounters with Native Americans, their struggle against sickness and starvation, culminating with their now famous celebration that we call the "First Thanksgiving." In this book you will find neither patriotic hero-worship, nor politically correct revisionism. This is the true story of Governor William Bradford, with all his faith, fears, and frailties, but retold in modern language so readers may hear his story the way he might tell it today over a hot cup of tea at your kitchen table.

Bringing chivalry back into our modern-day world, this book shows us how to inspire today's generation of young boys to pursue honor, courage, and compassion. In an age when respect and honor seem like distant and antiquated relics, how can we equip boys to pursue valor and courageously put the needs of others before their own? This book helps parents to inspire their boys by captivating their imagination and honoring their love for adventure. Heather Haupt explores how knights historically lived out various aspects of the knights' Code of Chivalry, as depicted in the French epic Song of Roland, and how boys can embody these same ideals now. When we issue the challenge and give boys the reasons why it is worth pursuing, we step forward on an incredible journey towards raising the kind of boys who, just like the knights of old, make an impact in their world now and for the rest of their lives. From the Trade Paperback edition.
