Yesterday my server was down most of the day. Bummer! But today I’d like to review resources available from St. Paul’s Music Conservatory. I’ll review a Christmas CD, two student-level hymn books, and a (potential) RSO of the LCMS, David’s Harp. 🙂

If you or a loved one might be interested in something totally new, here’s a place to start. 🙂 Lutheran author John W. Otte has a series called Failstate, which follows a teenage superhero trying to tame his powers and figure out his life.
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.
