Ordering Our Days

Today’s review is on Ordering Our Days in His Peace: An Introduction to the Christian Church Year by LCMS Pastor H. R. Curtis. It’s something of a follow up from my review post here from last week. (This is probably the format I’ll use when I actually post the reviews to Amazon & GoodReads after I wrap up with the third.)

World of Wazzlewoods

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 Closedbut 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!

The Church is One

Today I’ll review LCMS Rev. Richard Bolland‘s book, The Church is One: Recapturing the Lost Unity Christ Intended for His Church on EarthTo be honest, I’m able to do so many reviews this week because of long drives to and from a family funeral. So I’m sorry if this review is particularly affected by that.

Lockwood, an Aussie/ LCA pastor who received his doctorate through Concordia Seminary, St. Louis. In short, this book is absolutely fantastic.

The Fires of Autumn

As my eight-year old has already remarked, we’ve already had great weather to cozy up near a fire under a blanket with a book. One of my latest reads has been The Fires of Autumn by Lutheran author Rhonda Chandler, a piece of historical fiction that warmed me in several ways. My review is below.

My First Exorcism

I’m not a dark person, but I do think that Christians in particular should remember that darkness, evil, and the devil are very real. (I’ll let you in on a neat something I heard: never capitalize names for devil. He doesn’t deserve it.) So, today I’ll add another review to my growing list on that topic: My First Exorcism: What the Devil Taught a Lutheran Pastor about Counter-cultural Spirituality by Lutheran Rev. Dr. Harold Ristau, foreword by Lutheran Rev. Dr. John W. Kleinig.
