I’m happy to announce that a new book is available from Concordia Publishing House titled Lutheran Spirituality: Life as God’s Child. It is based on the extremely popular series of Bible studies under the same name, drawn together and edited into book form. This makes a perfect companion volume for Lutheranism 101. It is a 352 page paperback, for $14.99. You can download a PDF sample of the book as well. Here is the book’s description from the Concordia Publishing House web site. Order the book from the CPH web site, or call 800-325-3040 to place your order.

Do you want a closer relationship with God? Are there days when you feel far away from him? Instead of depending on your own strength, learn to depend on His!
This book, adapted from the popular Bible study series of the same name, explores the rich depths of a distinctively Lutheran spirituality. In Baptism founded upon God’s Word, the incarnate, crucified, and resurrected Lord proclaims His victory over sin, death, and the devil. From there flows the proclamation of His Gospel and the administration of His Sacraments. It is through these means presented within the liturgy of His Church that Christ communicates not merely spiritual energies, an emotional high, a method of reasoning, or a stringent morality, but He truly communicates Himself—God in human flesh.
This book is a how-to for Lutherans wanting more out of their spiritual life, written by respected Lutheran scholars.
It will help leaders in the church discover reachable goals to strengthen their own faith and help others grow strong as well.

    The preface uses the word “piety.” Can you do that?

    This looks excellent. Time for another book order….

    Thank you
