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.'

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.
