    "Quick Read, Great story, Recommend!"

    Martin Luther has always fascinated me... His faith, his commitment, his tenacity - what an impact he had as he allowed God to use him. I love his story and thoroughly enjoyed this brief account of his encounter before the King when he was forced to recant his writings or face the consequences. I only pray that my conviction can be a portion of his...and as he said, I pray I can testify as well "My conscious is captive to the Word of God... Here I stand!"
