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!

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.
