My Christian Hero for today is Martin Luther. There are several books published by him and about him at Christian Focus Publications. There are is one in the children’s list:

He also plays a part in the History Lives book – Courage and Conviction http://www.christianfocus.com/item/show/994/-/sr_1
The Lightkeeper’s book – Ten Boys Who Made a Difference. http://www.christianfocus.com/item/show/760/-/sr_2
How did Luther make a difference to the church and to the world? He is looked on as the father of the Reformation – the German monk who set the world on fire. He took the church back to scripture and put scripture back in the hands of the common man. He ignited the fire for bible translation that to an extent still continues today as we the church of the 21st century Go into the World with the Word of God.
