This is a wonderful book for both those who have read on Luther's life, his writings and his importance in history.
A well laid out introduction to Martin Luther his Life, Luther the Reformer, the Pastor, the Preacher, the Musician, the untiring Author...who burned with passion for the TRUTH of God's Word.

The Church History ABCs is a fun way for kids to learn about great figures in Christian history. Twenty-six heroes of the faith march through the alphabet, boldly telling their stories in language children can understand. This wide range of characters―men and women from across the centuries, from all over the globe―reflects the breadth of church history and reminds children that these great figures of the past were living, breathing people who lived and died for the glory of God.

Excellent essay on leadership. Hard to pack more into such a short space. Nichols concludes by summarizing five elements which characterized Luther's leadership: "Leaders know the most timely message is timeless truth, and they know how to tell it well. Leaders must be bold and confident, realizing the kind of boldness and confidence needed comes from God, not from within. Leaders face all sorts of opposition and conflict, distortion, and even rejection-yet they persevere through it. Leaders never underestimate the potential of children or of the “least among us.” Leaders serve. It is a humility marked by a willingness to hold power for the service of others" (58-59).

This is a great little book. In only 30 pages Stephen J. Nichols paints a wonderful picture of the importance and necessity of seeing work as a vocation.

This booklet is part of a series called ‘Basics of faith’ published by P&R. Nichols, professor of Christianity and culture at Lancaster Bible College, explores what the doctrine of vocation looks like in the twentieth century as well as how it was shaped by the Reformers in the sixteenth century.

Vocation in recent decades has become something of a dirty word, or one that is only applied to vicars and ministers. Vocations only apply to certain (usually professional) careers, the rest of us have jobs. However, this was not the original meaning. It comes from the Latin vocatio or vocare, which means ‘calling’. Originally it meant a call to the priesthood, but the Reformers redeemed its use and used it to apply to all callings including being a parent, a spouse and to the professions (p. 8). Hence the term, ‘full-time Christian ministry’ applies to all Christians whatever area of life they work in.

In a brief biblical overview Nichols traces the link between the garden and the task of cultivation to a new horizon of understanding for work. In our work we are in the service of the King. In two short sections he looks at how not to and how to work. Here he draws upon the insights in Proverbs.

He writes with the aim of helping us see that work – be it paid or unpaid - needs to be viewed as a calling, as a vocation. It is a message that we all need to be reminded of. This booklet will certainly help do that.
