Lutheran Resource Pages

I like resources and resource pages. I like tidy lists that can serve as one stop shops. So, I’m thinking about putting together yet another page on this site, listing Lutheran resources that may or may not be writing related. By that I mean, links for free resources like Bible studies and not-free resources like Lutheran Etsy shops. Is that dumb? Am I losing sight of my focus with this page?

Christian Standard Bible

A Lutheran translation of the Bible is coming out! But, instead of discussing whether or not it’s a good idea, how about we consider how it reflects ideas about relevance, language, nuance, etc.? A Cranach blog post on the upcoming edition here. I encourage you to read it and the goals behind the translation to see how much you agree, as a writer as well as a Lutheran, agree with Evangelical Heritage Version on Christian Standard Bible post.

Thank you, thank you, collection of various people, for not giving it too crazy a name. Thank you!
