Nearly two years ago, long before I left Canada, I started a fun project with my friend, Stephen McCaskell: a script for a documentary which became LUTHER: The Life and Legacy of the German Reformer.
The film was released earlier this year, premiering at TGC 2017 in Indianapolis, and has since been featured at a number of Christian film festivals—even being named the best documentary at the Christian Family Film Festival this past August.
During the production of the film, Stephen and our partners on the film, Eleazar and Rommel Ruiz of Patrol, began exploring ways to share the story in another form—to allow the material to find life in another medium. Luther: A Visual Book, a companion to the film, is the result.
Based on the screenplay, Luther: A Visual Book allows you to sit with the story and drink in the gorgeous illustrations from the animated segments of the film.
I received my copy of it in the mail yesterday, and I couldn’t take my eyes (and my hands) off it. It’s a book that begs you to touch it. To feel the paper, and take in every element. I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. The book officially releases on October 3, 2017, so I hope you’ll order a copy for yourself (and a copy of the film, too) today.
