I’m long overdue in reviewing Reverend Professor John Pless‘s Handling the Word of Truth: Law and Gospel in the Church Today. Yet, now no longer. 🙂
There are so many ways to write. It’s a beautiful thing with tons of opportunities, for service, for fun, etc. So I thought I’d share one with you today, highlighting a section called “The Peloponnesian Press.”
I’ve mentioned my friend, LCMS Pastor Chris Matthis, before (here and here). Now it’s come to my attention that he has released another book of his sermons, In the Shadow of the Cross: Sermons for Lent and Holy Week.
Hello! How about I don’t tell you what or when to buy, but I let you know about a quick sale on Amazon? 🙂 The details are here (Print Book Sale), but basically if you buy $20-worth of print books sold by Amazon (not through third party vendors just using Amazon), type in GIFTBOOK17 as a promo code during check out, and you’ll save $5.
Wickedly I may use this as an excuse to just plain buy a book I want rather than Christmas shop. Feel free to do the same or whatever. 🙂 But it only lasts through 11:59 p.m. (PT) November 26, 2017.
CPH also has book sales going on, including a nice selection of $5 books! You can find that here under Shop by Price.
Feel free to recommend additional book sale places in the comment section.
Ack! Something totally cool came to my Inbox and I totally forgot about it!!!! The ladies and gentlemen at Black and White Publishing Company are putting together a dark fairy tale anthology, written solely by women. Please, please, consider this awesomely fun opportunity to write for “Sisters Grimm”! And, help spread the word!
Were you ever taught how to read a newspaper article? Maybe that sounds funny, but I remember it distinctly. I want to say it was around fifth or sixth grade for me. The most important information was supposed to be in the first and last paragraphs. The first paragraph had a catch, something you care about, and the last paragraph offered closer or a possible next step. It occurred to me that that’s applicable for us if we ever want to write, or help write, press releases.
This blog is for writing-related stuff, which, to me, includes reading, too. So, although I did not blog about the CRAZY LARGE number of non-Lutheran homeschooling resources about the Reformation anniversary that flooded my gmail inbox, I did find one additional-to-CPH Reformation children’s book I particularly enjoy: Katharine von Bora: The Morning Star of Wittenberg.
When I say I am thrilled that LCMS Deaconess Elizabeth Ahlman has another book out, it is an understatement. Her latest release, Demystifying the Proverbs 31 Woman, is sure to be worth the effort of getting and digesting.
