Katharina von Bora, fearful of discovery, secretly pens a memoir of her apostasy, her forbidden marriage to Reformer Martin Luther, his life and legacy, their life and love together, their children, their trials and tragedies, and their joys and triumphs.
Here is what reviewers are saying about LUTHER IN LOVE
“…a fitting tribute to one of the most fascinating power-couples of the ages! With the skill of a scholar and the sparkle of a bard, Douglas Bond weaves together a thrilling and engaging story of Luther’s marriage to Katharina von Bora.”
ERIC LANDRY, Executive Editor, Modern Reformation
“An engaging and personal look at a figure of towering importance to Western civilization. This is a must-read for anyone who would see these events through the eyes of one who was there.”
DR. DAVID L. BODDE, Professor Emeritus, Clemson University
“Douglas Bond has a gift for capturing the living and authentic nature of historical figures and their times. In Luther in Love he has seamlessly woven together historical fact into an engaging and enduring love story of mutual comfort and support between a declared heretic and an apostate nun. An excellent read!”
MYRA BAUGHMAN, Professor Emeritus, Pacific Lutheran University
“Combining a historian’s eye for details with a novelist’s sense for a good story, Douglas Bond brings Luther down from the pedestal so we can walk beside him and get to know him as the man he really was. I recommend Luther in Love heartily.”
GREG BAILEY, editor
“Luther in Love is a lovely book, a pleasure to read, a creative and astute project, a page-turner, faithful to Luther’s voice as a Reformer, a preacher, a theologian, a son, a friend, a father, and a husband.”
AIMEE BYRD, author of Housewife Theologian, Theological Fitness, and No Little Women
“…Luther through the exhilarating mind of one of America’s most impressive Christian storytellers. Luther in Love is Christian historical fiction at its mesmerizing best!”
DARREN J. N. MIDDLETON, Professor of Literature and Theology, Texas Christian University
“I loved reading Luther in Love! I laughed, I wept—so much wisdom about biblical marriage! …a tender and insightful look into how the Father of the Reformation, and his beloved Katie, applied the theology of the Reformation to their marriage.”
SUSAN HUNT, author, Spiritual Mothering; former Coordinator, Women’s Ministry (PCA)
“Master historical novelist Douglas Bond has done it again. The fruit of extensive research, this book brings to life the story of Martin Luther’s legacy and his marriage to Katharina von Bora. Bond blends theological and biblical insight from Luther in a compelling book for all readers.”
MARVIN PADGETT, Executive Director/CEO, Great Commission Publications
“…beautifully written, incredibly moving account of Martin Luther and his bride Katharina von Bora. Bond seamlessly takes readers back 500 years. …richly told, deserves to be read and reread.”
ALISA WEIS, journalist and author of Swiftwater

THE POETIC WONDER OF ISAAC WATTS
This is Bond's second book in the Profiles of Godly Mean series, Steven Lawson, series editor, published by Ligonier's Reformation Trust Publishing. Here's what reviewers are saying about the book:
“Who among us has not had heart and mind stirred by a Watts hymn? Here we learn the story behind the hymns. We learn of a Christ-centered life, a doxological life. And from that wellspring has come the hymns we love to sing. Watts’s hymns are a gift for the church, and so is this biography by Douglas Bond.”
—Dr. Stephen J. Nichols
Professor at Lancaster Bible College and Graduate School
