    Martin Luther: Reformation Fire

    Martin Luther, born in the year 1483, was the gifted eldest son of a miner. His parents scrimped and saved to give him everything they had never had: a brilliant education, a promising career, a future... yet their plans were not God's plans.

    As Martin was making his way back to university one day, a thunderstorm changed all that. The threat of lightning sent Martin into a panic—and into the monastery to be a monk.

    How did this change in the weather change the course of the world?

    How did it ignite a fire in one man's heart—and eventually reform the church from heresy to hope? Read the story of Martin Luther and you will find out.


    Ulrich Zwingli: Shepherd Warrior

    In a small Swiss village, nestled in the Alps, a young boy was born. The year of his birth was 1484. By the end of his brief life, Ulrich Zwingli would change the religious landscape of his home and the world.

    Even today he continues to influence countless souls through his life and work.

    Zwingli was passionate about the Bible. He was a man of prayer. His faith impacted every area of his life: family, art, music, politics, and warfare.

    It wasn't until the last few years of his life that he became a reformer. He fought for truth and righteousness with his mind and pen, he fought for lost souls to hear the good news of Jesus Christ, and at the age of forty-seven, as an army chaplain, he was killed on the battle-field. Even to the last, he continued his life's passion of caring for the souls of others. The Shepherd Warrior, Ulrich Zwingli, fought the good fight.

    With his last strength, he voiced his victory: "They can kill the body but not the soul!"


    Lilias Trotter: Daring in the Desert

    "You could become the greatest living painter. Your paintings would be treasured forever."

    Those were the words Lilias Trotter heard from John Ruskins, one of the world's most established art critics. She had to make a choice between her talent and her calling. Both were gifts from God. In May 1879 Lilias knew what she should do. She didn't give up drawing and painting, not at all, but they weren't the most important things in her life from then on. Lilias knew that her life must be devoted to God's work.

    God's work for Lilias was in the desert land of Algeria. Palm trees and camels replaced lampposts and horse drawn carriages. The desert was her home, its people her friends and its Creator her reason for life.

    Lilias still took her easel, paints and brushes with her wherever she went, making her diary an amazing record in words and paintings.


    Dietrich Bonhoeffer: A Spoke in the Wheel

    Dietrich Bonhoeffer is one of the heroes of World War II. From a plot to assassinate Hitler, to eventually being imprisoned and martyred, this a gritty real-life story of perseverance.

    His belief in Christ, and the sacrifice that Christ asked of him, ultimately led to his death but he went to his execution peaceful and confident that he was going to meet the God who had saved him.

    Today he is remembered not only for his work with the German resistance but also for his writings, including his letters from prison and the classic books Life Together and The Cost of Discipleship.


    D.L. Moody: One Devoted Man

    Three words that sum up D.L. Moody's life are Passion, Vision, and Devotion–for God!

    He could easily share the gospel with 20,000 people on a hillside and then do the same thing the next day with just a few people in a church hall.

    D.L. Moody was fiery and fun! Watch out for how he used a pony to get children to church. One life devoted to God really can change the world.


    Elisabeth Elliot: Do the Next Thing

    Do the next thing... Elisabeth Elliot held these words close to her heart... but "the next thing" can be hard to do when you are a young wife grieving over the violent death of a beloved, dynamic, husband. It can be a struggle to do anything next when tragedy hits. Yet in God's strength, Elisabeth did quite a few "next things." After her husband and four other missionaries were martyred, Elisabeth found the courage to care for her child, write, and spread the gospel to the very people who had speared her husband.

    Elisabeth Elliot's life as a missionary in the jungles of Ecuador, and later as a bold spokeswoman for biblical femininity, speaks to our hearts about what the Lord will do when we surrender our all to Him, in a day when people like to live for themselves.


    William Tyndale: The Smuggler's Flame

    William Tyndale lived a life of adventure and danger, dodging the king's men, fleeing from his enemies and meeting with smugglers in the dead of night.

    What brought a well-educated young English man to such a state? Was he an outlaw? Was he a thief? No–he was a Bible smuggler, and a brave one at that.

    Tyndale wanted other English speakers to be able to read God's Word in their own language, but there were many who tried to put a stop to that.

    However, Tyndale's work was God's work and it would not be stopped–even after Tyndale's death. One day there was a translation of the Bible in the English language and it lit a fire in people's hearts that would not be put out.

    Read and learn about how God wants us to be brave and courageous and to stand up for the truth!
