SNEAK PEEK: Luther and Katharina by Jody Hedlund

cover image


She was a nun of noble birth. He, a heretic, a reformer… an outlaw of the Holy Roman Empire.  

 Click here to download an excerpt from Luther and Katharina.

In the 16th century, nun Katharina von Bora’s fate fell no further than the Abbey.

Until she read the writings of Martin Luther.
His sweeping Catholic church reformation–condemning a cloistered life and promoting the goodness of marriage–awakened her desire for everything she’d been forbidden.

Including Martin Luther himself.

The attraction—and tension—between them is undeniable. Yet Luther holds fast to his convictions and remains isolated, refusing to risk anyone’s life but his own. Katharina longs for love, but is strong-willed. She clings proudly to her class distinction, pining for nobility over the heart of a reformer.  

They couldn’t be more different.

But as the world comes tumbling down around them, and with Luther’s threatened life a constant strain, these unlikely allies forge an unexpected bond of understanding, support and love.

Together, they will alter the religious landscape forever.

 “Jesus’s words can replace stress with peace, sadness with joy, confusion with guidance and fear with faith. That’s why Jesus Speaks will not only change your day; it can change your life, your relationships, and your eternity!”

Christine Caine, best-selling author of Undaunted and founder of The A21 Campaign and Propel Women

“We express God’s love language when we hear His Son’s words, and obey them. That’s why Jesus Speaks can be so transformational to those who want true intimacy with God.”

—Gary Chapman, PhD, author of The Five Love Languages

“Jesus promised that if we abide in Him and His words abide in us, our prayers will be answered and we will bear much fruit.  Jesus Speaks provides an amazing springboard for any believer to abide in His words like never before.”

—Tommy Barnett, pastor of Phoenix First Assembly and founder of Los Angeles & Phoenix Dream Centers

“Jesus’ words are…the only way to infuse His life, spirit, peace, and joy into our lives.  With Jesus Speaks you can immerse your mind, heart, and soul in His words, every day!”

—Josh D. McDowell, author and speaker

“Steve Scott’s love for God, personal application of Scripture, and impressive understanding of Jesus’ heart for His people comes out on every page. I’m certain that readers will grow in their intimate relationships with the Father as they focus on Jesus’ words daily through Mr. Scott’s profound and encouraging writing.”

—Dr. Charles Stanley, senior pastor of First Baptist Church, Atlanta and president and founder of In Touch Ministries

“I absolutely love Jesus Speaks! I am coming to love Jesus more and more as I learn more of who He is through what He says in His own words!”

—Sandi Patty, Grammy Award–winning Christian music artist

Jesus Speaks will bring Christ’s stunning teaching, perspective, and heart into your everyday experience.”

 —Bobbie Houston, Hillsong Church, Sydney, Australia

“The words I have spoken to you—they are full of the Spirit and life.”

—John 6:63


When Jesus walked this earth, He gave His followers more than one hundred life-changing promises. He also gave more than one hundred teachings for living in line with God’s priorities—commands that lift us up rather than weigh us down!


This 365-day devotional invites you to let Jesus speak directly into your life. Each reading begins with a red-lettered statement of Jesus, directly from Scripture, followed by a powerful reflection on how He wants us to apply His truths to our daily lives.


No problem you face today is beyond the help of Jesus. No question you ask is beyond the answers of Jesus. The more you get to know this loving Savior, the more you will love Him! So come, immerse yourself in His words. He is speaking to you.
