Susan K. Leigh, author of the God, I Need to Talk to You series, has moved into a new medium with the graphic novel Luther: Echoes of the Hammer. She and her publisher, Concordia Publishing House, noticed there were not many Martin Luther biographies for younger readers, especially, as Leigh puts it, “for a reader not drawn to reading. We developed this to stimulate interest in Luther and to appeal to the non-reader.” The title refers to the hammer Luther used to nail his 95 theses, and how the repercussions of that act still resonate today. The book uses comics, mini-biographies, and historical notes to present an historically accurate portrait of Luther and his times. Illustrated by Dave Hill.
