Luther for the Busy Man is once more in print, thanks to Ambassador Publications, which I believe is the publisher for the Association of Free Lutheran Congregations (AFLC). I can’t say I know much about the collection of congregations, but I do know this book follows the historic one-year lectionary as guidance for daily devotions.
Lutheran author Rev. Dr. Matthew Richard, whom you may know from his first book, Will the Real Jesus Please Stand Up? released his next book, Minute Messages: Gospel-Filled Devotions for Every Occasion yesterday.
Yay yay yay! I’m especially excited to tell you about this new release: Alan Kornacki’s Rejoice, O Zion! Sing! Hymns for the Lutheran Service Book One-Year Lectionary and Other Occasions!
A blessed Reformation week to you! Here in Oklahoma we’re having some early winter weather. I pray everyone stays safe & warm! And, if possible, I wish you a cup of something warm and a good book! Speaking of which, this month Just and Sinner released two more reprints: True Christianity: Book I & Book II by Johann Arndt.
I’ve been back in the throes of writing poetry, so you’ll pardon me if I keep things a bit short and extra even-keeled over here. 🙂 Back in February, I posted a piece on church worker wellness resources. Well, I hadn’t gotten to say that there was an LCMS project to provide online devotions for church workers on areas of vocational, relational, financial, and emotional wellness.
I wasn’t late posting about 2018 Advent Resources, although I did mean to blog today’s titles sooner. This year I thought I’d try to tackle some additional devotional reading, and the two titles are The Soul in Paraphrase: A Treasury of Classic Devotional Poems, edited by Leland Ryken, and With My Own Eyes, a third-person retelling of the Gospels by none other than Lutheran bishop extraordinaire Bo Giertz, translated by LCMS Rev. Bror Erickson!
I’ve blogged about Lutheran pastor Gaven Mize a number of times, highlighting books like God Loves me Such, My Little ABC Liturgy Book, My Little ABC Coloring Liturgy Book, and Beauty and Catechesis. Now he’s offering another: an advent devotional titled Awake, You Who Sleep: The Advent of the Christ.
