I have met some great Lutheran authors in the last five years or so, one of whom is Vanessa Rasanen. I recently read a pre-release copy of her first novel, Soldier On (Releasing Fall 2018), and thoroughly enjoyed it. Anyway, she is currently offering an opportunity to apply for her “Forever Launch Team.”

I’m putting together another Lutheran resource list. This time it is books for little Lutherans by suggestion age-appropriate materials. Will this include some adult books? YES! But for now, I’ve learned about an illustrated Nicene Creed book!!!
Summer is a wonderful time for reading, not just as individuals but also as a family. Here is a book written by LCMS Pastor Tyrel Bramwell: Finding the Truth in Story: Grimm’s Fairy Tales, Vol. 1. I asked him to write a few words for a guest post today to let us know a little bit more about the book.
This will be one of at least two posts happily inspired by CPH’s soon-to-be-released A Flame in the Dark: A Novel about Luther’s Reformation by LCMS author Sarah Baughman. Today I’ll talk a little about Lutheran settings (and point out the GoodRead giveaway for her book!!).
The Lutheran Church–Canada has released a new book to celebrate this year’s important Reformation Anniversary! It looks really good! Titled Saints of the Reformation, it explores events, ideas, and movements, sure, but also “the story of people, individuals made of the same flesh and blood as we are. it is the story of their faith, their witness, their way of handling conflict, . . . .” etc. AWESOME!
Today is the release day for The Necessary Distinction: A Continuing Conversation on Law & Gospel!
I got behind on finishing Pless’s Handling the Word of Truth since I set it down . . . somewhere . . . but a five star review is still coming from me for that reread. In the meantime, I found out about a new book set to come out from CPH titled The Necessary Distinction: A Continuing Conversation on Law and Gospel.
The Spirituality of the Cross is an excellent book by Gene Edward Veith. Perhaps my favorite of his (though lesser known gems include The Gift of Art: The Place of the Arts in Scripture and Loving God with All Your Mind: Thinking as a Christian in the Postmodern World) . Spirituality of the Cross conveys both content and vernacular language with which to communicate theological substance, but, better yet, it is so well-written! I reread it yesterday, and I still marvel. It is inspirational to me, as a Lutheran and as a Lutheran writer.
