Ladies & Gentlemen, I’d like to introduce you to another Lutheran author, D Marie. 🙂 She was a long-time Lutheran school teacher, who’s turned to writing an educational, formative trilogy for intermediate grade readers on up.

While I didn’t exactly mean to take a week off, it sure looks like things are headed in that direction. 🙂 I’ve started playing piano for church and I just have too much music to learn to have much free time.

Let’s talk about Bo Giertz and how you could give Bo Giertz collections for Christmas. Ha haa. Seriously, though, he is a gem of a Lutheran writer who, though sainted now, is increasingly available in English due to some serious dedication by Lutheran pastor and translator Bror Erickson. I’ll tell a little about him, list books that I know are available in English, and give a review of his most recently translated novel, Faith Alone: The Heart of Everything.
Yep, time for one of my period posts about how Lutherans ought to read more poetry. Mostly I want to remind you that Lutheran poetry is INCREASINGLY AVAILABLE! Buy poetry books for Christmas, especially Lutheran poetry books!
I know you may not have always liked the poetry taught in school, or the poetry you were forced to write in school, but poetry is language of the soul, folks. SIX ENTIRE BOOKS of the Bible are poetry: Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Solomon, and Lamentations. It’s NOT A PASSING CRAZE!
