Affirming words for AF Book of Faith resources

December 5th, 2011 by Beth A. Lewis


A few days ago, I was delighted to read this posting on the ELCA Resource Center Directors' listserv. WOW!  It doesn't get better than this!  Thanks, Irene!

" I’ve been thinking about all the great Book of Faith resources that Augsburg Fortress has published these past years!  I just want to say that I think they are excellent!  I love the 3 series –People of Faith; Books of Faith; and Together in Faith.  I am especially pleased with the Books of Faith series.  FINALLY!  A book by book excellent study with great scholarship and great teaching suggestions and Lutheran takes on things!  I appreciate them all!  I also love the foundational series.  I think David Lose has done an excellent job with his “Making Sense of…..”  And those Lenten and Advent series have been stellar.  The Lutheran Study Bible is so well done and that middle section is gorgeous . The Spark curricula is flexible and thorough.  I must say, my favorite is the Spark Children’s Bible.  I love looking at the illustrations and I love reading the stories.  It’s just chock full of Good News!  Thanks Augsburg Fortress and everyone who has worked so hard on all of these resources!
