Luther: Echoes of the Hammer

Luther: Echoes of the Hammer (The Graphic Novel)
By Susan K. Leigh, Illustrated by Dave Hill
(Concordia, 2011), pb., 144 pp.
Ages 6+

Just in time for Reformation Day Concordia Publishing House has released this graphic novel of the life of Luther. Susan Leigh does a good job telling the story of Luther and the graphic novel format is engaging. The book works from Luther’s birth to his death and does a good job with details as well as the theological and historical issues.  Along the way sidebars (or full pages) are given to providing more information on other key people in the story from other reformers, political leaders and Catholic leaders.

This is an engaging way to get your children reading about this important man and event.
