The Carpenter of ZerbstISBN: 9781894666343
A Story from the Time of the Great Reformation
Johan Tetzel, the indulgence pedlar, was coming to the town of Zerbst. However, Otto Maehler was forbidden to join the procession to meet this distorter of God’s truth. Father Maehler called Tetzel a blasphemer and after going to the church to tell the people so, he lost favour with the town magistrates. Despite the fury of the magistrates, Father Maehler offered Martin Luther the cup of honour. But the consequences were harsh. Their lives were spared, but . . . Where had Martin Luther gone?
Join Otto’s family as they cling to God’s promises through all their grief and tension. Witness with joy the work of God in the lives of His children as well as in the lives of the enemies of the cross.
Another historical novel by P. de Zeeuw. Written in a fascinating way for children to learn church history. It will encourage them to remain steadfast in the faith and to confess with Martin Luther:
Here I stand!
I cannot do otherwise.
May God help me! Amen.
