Featured Site: The Kretzmann Project

The Kretzmann Project is the online version of Paul E. Kretzmann's Popular Commentary of the Bible, first published in 1924 but now out of print. Kretzmann was a pastor and professor in the Lutheran Church- Missouri Synod and later helped form the Orthodox Lutheran Conference, thus the conservative perspective of the commentary.

I have the four-volume set in my library and refer to it often, although it is brief and not as comprehensive as other academic commentaries. Having said that, in a busy week when there are many hospital calls and other family responsibilities, it's helpful to use in a pinch.

Featured Site: Let Us Pray

Well, it hasn't worked out so well for me posting once a week. Nevertheless, I'm still here.

Let Us Pray is a resource offered by the LCMS Commission on Worship. It offers suggested petitions for the Prayer of the Church for Sundays and other festival days. The link at the right takes you to the archives where you can download past and current prayers. You can also have current and upcoming prayers e-mailed to you by signing up with LCMS e-News and navigating to the proper page to sign up for Let Us Pray.
