The 176-pages full-color guide by Cornelia Dömer, the former head of the Luther Center in Wittenberg, came out for the anniversary of the Reformation, which began 1517. While the printed book sells for $13.95, the ebook is available from $7.49 to $7.99 only.
This guide takes you to the German landscape where the Reformation took place, to every church, castle, and convent Martin Luther has ever set foot in. A big part is devoted to the historic city of Wittenberg, where Luther nailed his ninety-five theses to the door of the Castle Church. The book also features Eisleben, Mansfeld, and Magdeburg where Luther was born and went to school, Eisenach with the Wartburg Castle, where he translated the Holy Bible into German, and many other cities of the Reformation, from Leipzig to Erfurt to Torgau, where his wife, Katharina von Bora, is laid to rest. Also, stories about food and clothing, traveling and living in the Middle Ages can be found here.
The ebook offers many pictures and maps of every town, as well as a multitude of live links to hotels, museums, churches, and other places, and also addresses, phone numbers, and information on American churches and services in Germany. The preface was written by Robert Kolb, Missions Professor Emeritus of Systematic Theology at the Concordia Seminary in St. Louis, Missouri.
