I’m branching out to more genres now that I’m reviewing more Lutheran authors. It’s pretty cool! It sometimes takes me a little while to settle in, but I’m really pleased to see how diverse our authors are and how varied our books are. Seriously, it proves that we can be in this together and not in competition with each other. Today’s review is on Immanuel: Battles of Armor and Soul by Garen Pay, which was released in February of this year.
LCMS Deaconess Heidi Goehmann has released another women’s Bible study! Casting Stones: A Study of Ecclesiastes 3 (An I Love My Shepherd Study) is now available through Amazon in kindle and book format.
I don’t know many of the women who write Bible studies for CPH these days. I’m not sure why. It could be connected to them often being pastors’ wives spread out all over the country! Anyway, I’ve met Deb Burma briefly. She lead a retreat for the Oklahoma District Pastors’ Wives, where we had some pleasant chats. She has written a number of other books since then, and now she has another book coming out! Sip, Savor, and Drink Deeply: Receive God’s Overflowing Gifts is available for preordering.
A book and a mystery: There’s a new book out, written I believe by a former ELCA, now LCMC pastor, Rev. Kristian Baudler, titled Martin Luther’s Priesthood of All Believers–In an Age of Modern Myth. Except strictly speaking, it isn’t new. Rather, my husband got an email from Oxen Press, yet the book appears to be self-published through Amazon. It seems there are two Amazon pages listing it different ways.
