Lutheran Matrix?

I’m sharing a writing idea today, revolving around the concept of a matrix. Lutheran matrix? Ok, many an anti-Lutheran, anti-Christian matrix. We’ll see what you think.

Who says there can’t be a Lutheran mummy book?

Not me! I have this super great idea of a  mummy book I could write! Delving into how Christians could handle death “nearing extinction,” as well as how would the human heart and mind process coming back from the dead and realizing one’s gods were false!

Part of me wants to share the cool little details I’ve come up, and a larger part of me laughs to think of others playing around with mummy ideas, too. 🙂

Don’t worry. I doubt I have the heart or the scarab to write such a thing. I SURE don’t have a science angle to adequately suit sci fi readers. Still, I’m enjoying pondering it and just maybe . . . someday . . .

Until then, happy reading & writing!

Abridgments

Just a short post today, but I’m in luck! My mother-in-law is sending me a bunch of classic abridgments: shortened versions for children. Yay!

I wonder if a similar thing could be done for Lutheran confessional pieces! 😉

Happy reading & writing!

The Cursed Jesus: A Shared Idea

Today I want to share an idea for a book: the cursed Jesus. I think it could be marvelous! Not only could it explore the terms for curse in Scripture, tracing out so much in the Old Testament that illustrates how Jesus took our curse(s) upon Himself upon the tree, but it could go face to face with Scripture often shied away from.

Concept of Time

Thanks for the comments on yesterday’s post. As I’ve continued to think about the topic, it’s occurred to me that, as sinners, we are so quick to look to “normal.” What do we consider normal? An ongoing pretty good situation that can handle rather trivial chances in scenario. I’m thinking “normal” relates to our understanding of God and the extent of our need for God! Sadly, people don’t want to need God in a normal, ongoing way.

hard-hitting

I haven’t written much fiction, though I daydream about doing so. Still, I think a lot of good Lutheran theology and dialogue could shine through, just as it does in real life, in some good novels. Especially hard-hitting novels! The post below, from Cranach, reminded me of that. Imagine comparing theological approaches to the poor with actual people since theological absolutely affects actual people!

New Testament Psalms

I’ve had an idea–and I’m sharing that idea, although I’m not entirely sure whether it’s a possible project. I wonder if people could glean images and metaphors from the New Testament and incorporate them into a new sort of devotional psalter, like New Testament Psalms. Replacing the Book of Psalms? No!!!!! Making a part II that could, in any way, equal the authority, strengths, and beauties of the Book of Psalms?? No!

Library books on Kindle

I thought I’d share one of my random writing ideas with you today. Basically, it’d be a story following this line: “You have no idea what it means to a spy to suddenly have access to library books on kindle.”
