Because it’s January (and let’s face it: January is boring), Rachel and the Ladies need something to entertain them … and this time, that something is a Trivia Challenge all about what Martin Luther said and wrote about women!
Offering riddles, true-false questions, and other trivial queries, Rachel covers a range of occasionally outrageous quotes from Luther’s sermons, lectures, personal letters, and “table talk” discussions. Which biblical women did Luther seem to preach on most often? Should marriage (according to Luther) make life easier … or harder? How did he (and did he not) provide for his wife after his death? How did becoming a husband and father help Luther understand and appreciate women more?

For those who were curious about the Widow Luther’s male guardian: Sarah was right. It was Johannes Bugenhagen.
