December Spotlight! Martin Luther’s Christmas Book

Martin Luthers Christmas Book CoverBook Description

This inspiring collection contains thirty excerpts from Martin Luther’s Christmas sermons. In his unique and powerful voice, Luther portrays the human reality of God’s birth on earth—Mary’s distress at giving birth with no midwife or water, Joseph’s misgivings, the Wise Men’s perplexity, Herod’s cunning. And throughout these sermon-meditations, Martin Luther reminds us that keeping Christmas is a year-round mission of caring for those in need.

Nine elegant illustrations by Luther’s contemporaries—including four by noted engraver Albrecht Durer—capture timeless scenes from the Christmas story. And two of Luther’s beautiful Christmas carols are included on the final pages of the book.
