You know that I gather names of living Lutheran authors. I’ve really enjoyed a lot of what I’ve discovered and these folks (you writers, you) have written on ALL SORTS OF THINGS! I’m SO PROUD of the variety of genres and subject matter! There are Lutherans writing long series, stand alones, and everything in between. But my favorite read-for-pleasure-novel lately comes from Lutheran author Rhonda Chandler and it’s called The Ritornello Game: A Marlonburg Story. (I really, really hope that means it’ll become a series!). It was perfect! Quite different from her previous novel but so well done! Those two books may be in my top ten of Lutheran-penned fiction!
I absolutely adored Lutheran author Emily Cook‘s Tend to Me: Devotions for Mothers. It’s set up with brief little devotions followed with a prayer and some additional questions & Bible passages for further reflection. I liked them so well, I read several at a time, almost gulping them down. 🙂
I have to say that I really enjoyed Jonathan Fisk‘s latest, Talk Them Into It: The Truth about Making Christians. My review follows.
Today’s post is a review of Lutheran author (and PK) Karen Averitt’s memoir, I Don’t Want to Have the Prayer: A Messy Pastor’s Kid Does Her Memory Work.
My goal is to review the Lutheran books I’ve read this summer, but to do, at most, every other day reviews. Today’s review will be on Lutheran author Ray Keating‘s Shifting Sands: A Pastor Stephen Grant Short Story. The summer $2.99 sale is still going on, though I don’t know how long it will last, so keep that in mind.
In January, I announced my dad’s latest book, Post-Christian: A Guide to Contemporary Thought and Culture. I posted about it here. I promptly read it halfway, stopped, and started over from the beginning. It’s half a year later and I still haven’t written a review. It was simply a lot to digest. I’d read it. Think it through. Reread the chapter. Or section. 🙂 But at long last, here’s my review.
Today’s post is a review of Lutheran author Colleen Oakes‘ first in a series, Wendy Darling. (She has completed this series and also has two other series. One even translated into German!!) But before I forget to have a single reminder about my own July sale, here it is. Today is the FINAL day to use the 40% off coupon code TSXMC2RC. Purchasers in the USA have a flat shipping rate of $2.99. Click on my store above or link to this post for more details.
