For the first time in my life I’ve been paid to write something for publication. It was a great feeling! Admittedly, I didn’t write much – two short entries – for The Lutheran Handbook II, the sequel to the amazingly popular The Lutheran Handbook. When it was first released, The Lutheran Handbook sold out of its first several print runs within days. They are both excellent books (if I do say so myself) providing youth and adults with accessible, engaging, and relevant bites of history, theology, Bible and discipleship. Go out, buy the books, and laugh your way to a deeper appreciation of all things Lutheran!
