I found out about a neat Lutheran find! Patrick’s Places: Patrick Hamilton’s Distinction Between Law and Gospel, Faith and Works, released January 9th by editor Don Matzat with introduction from LCMS Pastor Jordan McKinley. Lutheran roots of the Reformation in Scotland!!! AWESOME! AND INEXPENSIVE! 🙂

Remember when I told you about the short story “Blizzard at Three Bears Lake” by Lutheran author Rachel Kocaviny? It is now available as a FREE e-book from both Amazon and Barnes and Noble (or you can continue to download it from her website). Anyway, her first book, Cloaked, is now available as a Nook Book and Dancing and Doughnuts will become available on that platform as well. Below there are a few more Rachel Kovaciny updates. 🙂
I got a very happy item in the mail on Friday, and now I get to review Rev. Tyrel Bramwell‘s most recent release! Now, you might think I’m referring to his recent release, Come in We Are Closed, but nope! I reviewed that here. This guy has had two releases within almost a month and a half! CRAZY! But The World of the Wazzlewoods (A Fern & Dale Fairy Tale) was a delightful read and I’m glad I didn’t have to wait longer for it. 🙂 Well worth including as a present or stocking stuffer for the seven to eight year olds! Great illustrations by Lutheran artist extraordinaire Edward Riojas!
LCMS Pastor and author Tyrel Bramwell has now released a children’s book, The World of the Wazzlewoods: A Fern & Dale Fairy Tale. If you recall, he knows a thing or two about fairy tales, as shown in his Finding the Truth in Story: Grimm’s Fairy Tales, Vol. 1. 🙂 He also knows a thing about fiction, having written The Gift and the Defender, in addition to his non-fiction work, Come in, We Are Closed.
I have another new release from a Lutheran author for you! Kas (Kasandra) was born in Germany and moved to the United States in her late teens. Over the next years, she translated her first story into a very broken English, which over another couple years was edited by her now husband, Josh Radke (aka Joshua Rothe of Stitched Crosses: Crusade). .
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.
I feel like I blogged announcing this was coming, but Katie Schuermann’s latest project is now for sale! He Restores My Soul is a collection of writings on cross and comfort with 14 chapters and 12 authors, edited by the keen mind and gentle tongue of awesome Mrs. Katie Schuermann. Get it! Stock your family, church, and public library! 🙂 I know I’m looking forward to reading it when I get the chance.
