Cranach store update

Thanks again to Cheryl Banks for helping with the design and features of this blog. You can now buy books from EITHER Concordia Publishing House OR Amazon.

We also have a box featuring the writings of my other colleague at the Cranach Institute, Angus Menuge, who has written widely on the philosophy of science, intelligent design, apologetics, C. S. Lewis, and evangelism.

We also have a box for books on our major theme here, the doctrine of vocation. It includes the essential book on the subject by the Swedish theologian Gustav Wingren, “Luther on Vocation.” The other classic book from a Swedish theologian, Einar Billing’s “Our Calling,” was available just a few weeks ago, having come back into print at least briefly, but I see it’s not available now. You can still find it on some used book sites. But the icon is still there, in hopes it will reappear on Amazon. I also list, in addition to my own “God at Work,” a relatively new anthology of writings on the subject going back to the days of the early church. There are other books about vocation, of course, but some of them don’t quite “get it,” in my opinion. In the future, I hope to review some of these, and, if they pass muster, list them in this box with my recommendation.

Also, notice the Amazon.com portal now on this site. If you do your Amazon searching and subsequent buying from the Cranach blog, we will get a commission! We also get a cut every time you click one of the Google ads, which I hope are not too annoying. So that’s a way you can help us pay the rent for this online real estate.

    Might I add one recommendation for reading on the subject of vocation? Leo Tolstoy’s “story of the early church” called “Walk in the Light While Ye Have Light,” in the long quotation from an old man to the subject of the story — which forms the conclusion of the story — has (in my opinion, no disrespect to Dr. Veith or Wingren) the single-best expounding on the Christian doctrine of vocation I have ever seen.
