There was really nothing that seemed unusual in what Martin Luther had done. The church door was often used as a bulletin board for notices. Little did Luther realize that his actions on October 31, 1517 would mark the beginning of a great reformation of the church and of the return of the pure word of God to the people of the world. There are 16 chapters included: Introduction; The Time In Which Luther Lived; The Peasant's Son; The School Boy; The University Student; The Monk; The Professor and Preacher; The Reformer; The Accused; The Knight; The Leader; The Schoolman; The Musician and Poet; The Husband and Father; The Defender of the Faith; The Death of the Faithful Believer; and Our Heritage. Includes maps and illustrations. Grades 6 to 9.
