Friend, I am so excited about my new book When Lightning Struck! The Story of Martin Luther (Fortress Press, 2015). I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate than to make resources for you to use with the book. I can’t give away the book, but I’m giving away the resources! You can find out more at the When Lightning Struck! page.
Today, I want to tell you about the discussion guide I created for you! The guide is 34 pages long, full-color, and it’s free for you to download.
When Lightning Struck! is written for young adults (that’s your middle and high school students). Told in a narrative manner, the story of Martin Luther is also engaging as a read-aloud for grades 3-5.
The When Lightning Struck! Discussion Guide is perfect for:
- Youth Groups
- Sunday School Classes
- Family Read-Alouds
- Homeschool Christian History
I’ve also designed a 12-week unit study on Martin Luther for middle and high school students in homeschools or co-ops, which I’ll tell you more about next week! (That’s free, too, because I really value you.)
The When Lightning Struck! Discussion Guide is 34 pages long. Each chapter has discussion questions and timeline dates to add to the 4-page timeline I’ve included at the back of the guide.
There are also short biographies of important figures, and relevant Scripture passages to consider with discussion questions.
You can locate the free When Lightning Struck! Discussion Guide at the When Lightning Struck book page. You can also read more about the book, check out endorsements, and find a couple of ways to pre-order the book.
Why pre-order? Your pre-order helps communicate that you care about engaging, quality Christian history for young adults. It’s like putting the publishing industry on notice that you’d like more of these types of books for your children. It also helps get the word out to magazines and Christian theological bloggers that When Lightning Struck! is a book you want to hear about, and lets them know you’d like to see more Christian history resources available like this one. Plus, When Lightning Struck! will just land in your mailbox the very day it’s available.
Want to download that Discussion Guide? Just hop over the book page, and you’ll find the link near the bottom, under the Resources section.
