Praise, prayer, poetry, and power
The Lutheran Study Bible from Concordia Publishing House utilizes the text of the highly accurate yet poetic English Standard Version (ESV) with articles and footnotes from Bible scholars who responded to concerns and questions asked by hundreds of workers and laity in Lutheran churches around the world. I’m impressed by that fresh approach and unique global contribution but also glad to see that my hardback review copy of this edition was printed, Smyth-sewn, and manufactured in the U.S.A.

Welcome! I'm a lifelong lover of Christ, the Bible, church, family, prayer, and poetry, so I've written about those in over 2,000 articles, children's stories, devotionals or poems and 30 traditionally or indie published books. I also help other poets, pastors, and writers improve devotionals, sermons, poems, children's picture book texts, and book proposals for a minimal fee.
