Description-

  • "When a boy who has poverty for his companion is inclined to find fault with the company that he is forced to keep, he should comfort himself by reading about the boyhood days of Martin Luther—a son of poverty who by the strength of God and the grace of Christ stamped his name on every page of history written subsequently to his day."—from the book

    Dedicated by its author to the "Youth of the Land," this book is the inspiring story of Martin Luther, who was born to poverty in 1483, who was beaten in school on a regular basis, but who rose above his circumstances to change the course of history.

About the Author-

  • John Arch Morrison (1893–1965) was an American author. His works include The Deacon of Dobbinsville, The Ministry of Rolla Clark, The Kingdom of Selfhood, Learning How to Be Happy, Triumphant Living, As the River Flows: The Autobiography of John A. Morrison, and As I Was Thinking.

Reviews-

  • AudioFile Magazine Historian J.A. Morrison's young reader's biography of the great Protestant reformer, published in 1924, reflects the pieties and casual bigotries of that time. Its openly Protestant disdain for the "Romish" faith would never be allowable in today's politically correct culture, even by 12-year-olds. Edward Lewis commendably neutralizes this flaw; his delivery brings a balance and an intonation more in line with the style of objective reporting that listeners are accustomed to today, while preserving the respect and admiration for Luther that the author so clearly feels. This biography is a good introduction to Luther on most points and does evoke the sense of moral purpose that Luther's life inspired. Lewis's nuanced reading provides whatever shading and perspective the narrative requires, recasting the tone of this dated work and bringing to it a sensibility the original lacked. D.A.W.
