Martin Luthers 95 Thesen, in denen er gegen Missbräuche beim Ablass und besonders gegen den geschäftsmäßigen Handel mit Ablassbriefen auftrat, wurden am 31. Oktober 1517 als Beifügung an einen Brief an den Erzbischof von Mainz und Magdeburg, Albrecht von Brandenburg, das erste Mal in Umlauf gebracht. Da eine Stellungnahme Albrechts von Brandenburg ausblieb, gab Luther die Thesen an einige Bekannte weiter, die sie kurze Zeit später ohne sein Wissen veröffentlichten und damit zum Gegenstand einer öffentlichen Diskussion im gesamten Reich machten.

Der Zauber um Ostern: In diesem Bilderbuch wird die Ostergeschichte mit farbigen, sehr schön gemalten Bildern erzählt. Sie beginnt mit dem Erscheinen von Jesus zum Paschafest, erzählt über die Vorbereitungen des Festes,das Paschamehl, über den Verrat von Judas und der darauffolgenden Kreuzigung und schliesslich über die Auferstehung. Dank den lieblich gezeichneten Figuren und den sanften Landschaften wird viel von der Härte der erzählten Kreuzigung Jesus genommen. So wird das Thema auf einer Doppelseite einfach dargestellt, und man spürt, dass das Hauptgewicht und damit viele Bilderbuchseiten auf die Auferstehung Jesus gelegt ist. Die golden gezeichneten Engel lassen einem das Wunder des so schweren weggeschobenen Steines und des leeren Grabes fest spüren. So wird einem die Geschichte aus der Bibel näher gebracht, ohne zu erschrecken. Dennoch wirft sie Fragen auf, mit denen der Erzähler rechnen muss. Wer sich mit dem Thema Ostern mit Kindern biblisch auseinandersetzen will, findet hier eine kindsgerechte Fassung. Ab 7 Jahren, gut, Eveline Zwahlen.
