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.)
Ok. I have a number of similar reviews coming up. Basically, they’re books I’ve been wanting for my kids and happily received for Christmas. 🙂 First in line is Behold the Lamb: An Introduction to the Signs and Symbols of the Church by LCMS Deaconess and Editor Pam Nielsen.
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).
Christians are called to defend the faith. Saint Paul put it beautifully when he described himself as “put here for the defense of the gospel” (Philippians 1:16b). But that doesn’t mean we can’t benefit from guidance and support, not only for ourselves but for all ages. So please welcome onto the scene Called to Defend: An Apologetics Handbook for the Middle School Student.
Here is a real find for you: Lutheran Pastor Philip J Rigdon has two novels out (Under the Bridge to the Seeds of Light and its sequel Lewis Warner Finds the Doom Prophet, Under the Bridge Part II). AND, he has put together a study guide/curriculum for teaching reading and writing for it to middle and high school students! Free resource and Lutheran novels?! LOVE IT!
