Ages ago it seems, I mentioned a new release and I’ve finally gotten around to reading it: The Unholy Trinity: Martin Luther Against the Idol of Me, Myself, and I by Rev. Dr. Michael A. Lockwood, an Aussie/ LCA pastor who received his doctorate through Concordia Seminary, St. Louis. In short, this book is absolutely fantastic.
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.
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.
Today’s post is a review of Lutheran (medical) Dr. John D. Eckrich‘s first book, Vocation and Wellness: Renew Your Energy for Christian Living. And, by first book, I mean first of three! Well done, Dr. Eckrich!
Another big release day! Rev. Tyrel Bramwell, author of the novel The Gift and the Defender, commentary of Finding the Truth in Story (Grimm’s Fairy Tales, Vol. 1), and new children’s book The World of the Wazzlewoods, has added an important voice to conversation about Closed Communion in Come in, We’re Closed.
Today, I intended to post about theological poets, but that has to be postponed. I’d like my dad’s feedback on it, but he’s off traveling. Meanwhile, I introduced P.S. Broaddus just over a week ago, and now I’m ready to review the first book in his series, A Hero’s Curse (The Unseen Chronicles Book 1).
