This is the seventeenth of thirty-one readers used in the Veritas Press Phonics Museum program, designed for first grade.
The Word of God has power. God took one lonely monk, equipped him with His Word, and started a revolution that has spanned both continents and centuries. The monk, Martin Luther, had a conscience held captive by the Word of God, and through his faithfulness, the church of Christ was set free.
Here the story of that lonely monk is retold for children. They will discover that true heroes are not light saber wielding ascetics, but those who will take their stand equipped with the sword of the Lord. And maybe they will be encouraged to stand firm as well.
