Rarely have I come across a story of two more controversial figures than Martin Luther and his beloved wife Katherina. Author Jody Hedlum has weaved together a symphony of love in the backdrop of one of the most challenging and dangerous times in human history.
Martin Luther, the Roman catholic monk who discovered the gospel in the midst of the corruption of religion, finds love in the midst of daily persecution as he leads a movement that threatens the Church and spreads reform throughout Germany and Europe.
Katharina Van Bora, a nun and a member of the aristocratic class, moved by the writings of Martin Luther breaks out of the convent that she lived in to find a new life, one with family and love.
Together the both of them find each other and try to build a married life as the world around them war. In the midst of loving each other the both of them also find themselves warring against traditions and mindset that threaten the promise of them living in a union of love.
Jody Hedlum is an incredible writer and a master storyteller. She has created an incredible story of two of God’s vessels used to bring life to a world that struggled under the death of religion, politics and tyranny.
I know that you will enjoy this story as much as I did. It is a contemporary look into the lives of two people used by God who found love in the midst of trying times.
