The story of Martin Luther and his role in sparking the Protestant Reformation is given an interactive retelling in this beautiful and sturdy pop-up book. From Luther’s decision to become a monk to his 95 theses, history jumps off the page through the vibrant, colorful illustrations of renowned artist and paper engineer Agostino Traini.

Full of surprising details, this book will have kids coming back again and again to learn about this fascinating chapter in the history of the Christian faith. Published in time for the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, The Life of Martin Luther is also an excellent gift for anyone with an interest in the history of the Christian church.

“What a charming book! With whimsy and insight–and some delightful pop-ups–this little book gives young folks a lovely introduction to the story of Martin Luther. Populated with a colorful cast of human and animal friends, Luther’s story really comes to life in simple, humorous pictures. Adults: look for Desmond Tutu and Dietrich Bonhoeffer in the cloud of witnesses at the end!”
