Knight and Peasant (Franz Hoffmann)

$19.00 $16.50

A Narrative for my Young Friends

In this historical account of the 16th-century Peasant War, Franz Hoffmann’s aim is to urge his readers to fear God and work righteousness. The peasants’ Twelve Articles gave biblical solutions to the severe oppression under which they labored, but the godless conduct of their leaders escalated to such a degree that the depravity of man and the ugliness of war manifested itself on both sides, causing unspeakable devastation.

While not a story for the fainthearted, this documentary compels us to consider not only what causes are worth fighting for, but in what manner a righteous cause should be defended.

Reader Reviews

“What a well written tragedy. It is as it was advertised. A story about a Peasant war, which might have been an astounding triumph were it not for the poor leadership of some of the instigators. The book held my interest until the end, and the profound lesson was clearly illustrated.” — John Morgan, Orlando, Florida

“It is so important to know when joining a cause that you are all like-minded, that your motive is right and true before God, and that you hold all accountable. In this story those who had integrity perished because of one who just wanted revenge.” — Sacse, Texas
