For those who prefer watching to reading, the movie Luther is an enlightening and historically faithful rendition of the life and legacy of Martin Luther. Luther and the Reformation is a video teaching series by R. C. Sproul and Ligonier Ministries. It’s available for free for Amazon Prime users or you can purchase it here. This is a fantastic teaching series that will introduce you to Luther’s story and his theological legacy.
Here’s a few resources for the little ones. The Barber Who Wanted to Pray tells the story about how the aging Martin Luther wrote an entire book to help his barber learn how to pray more effectively. Fantastic read! What Should I Do? is a short book that tells the story of Luther’s salvation experience. The Church History ABCs isn’t exclusively about Luther, but it’s an awesome resource to teach little children about many of the giants who have gone before us.
Finally, if you’d like to listen to a conference talk about Martin Luther, I recommend John Piper’s excellent message from the 1996 Bethlehem Conference for Pastors.
