Product Description

At the famous Leipzig Disputation between Martin Luther and John Eck in 1519, the monk from Wittenberg carried in his hand a bunch of flowers, in moments of pressure looking at them and enjoying their fragrance. Someone has aptly said that amid the storms and stresses of his later life, Luther's wife and children were his bunch of violets.

Luther once said, 'Next to God's Word, the world has no more precious treasure than holy matrimony. God's best gift is a pious, cheerful, God-fearing wife, with whom you may live peacefully, to whom you may entrust your goods, your body, and your life.' This biography brings to life the touching story of the Mother of the Reformation.

Publisher's Description

Few of us have heard of Catherine von Bora. And yet, as the beloved wife of Martin Luther, she can very justifiably be seen as one of the most influential figures in the Reformation. She made her home a haven of rest for the storm tossed man that was her husband. Luther once said, 'Next to God's Word, the world has no more precious treasure than holy matrimony. God's best gift is a pious, cheerful, God-fearing wife, with whom you may live peacefully, to whom you may entrust your goods, your body, and your life.'

Editorial Reviews

This is the first time that I have delved into any Luther literature and I was not disappointed. Luther was greatly blessed by the partnership he enjoyed with Katie. One is left wondering if Luther would have achieved all that he did without the help of his Katie. This is an interesting read but tinged with sadness. I would highly recommend it to those wishing to understand the man Martin Luther and what made him who he was.


In this valuable little book we are given a brief account of the life of Martin Luther. In addition, we have the fascinating story of his wife, 'my lord Katie'. Not only did Luther love his Katie dearly, he relied on her advice and companionship throughout his turbulent life. Packed into this record, we have insights into Luther's character: his boldness, his depressions, his family life and, most of all, his devotion to Katie. We learn of the joys and sorrows of their lives and of Katie's intelligent interest in all the theological arguments of the day. Read Luther and his Katie and it will give you a grasp of the life and influence of the great Reformer, and may well lead you on to more detailed books on Luther's enormous contribution to the church in this special year.
