Who Forgot to Tell Me That Jenson Has a New Book Out?

Ben Myers, that's who. Or maybe the American Lutheran Publicity Bureau. (Is there some kind of online Jenson fan club we can bookmark for all new RWJ news?) In any case, it's called Lutheran Slogans: Use and Abuse, apparently in the same style (and by the same publisher) as his A Large Catechism from 1991. Looking forward to a quick and provocative and no doubt wry read.

(While you're at it -- "it" being following links from here, where no actual content to read can be found -- go check out this piece about Jürgen Moltmann visiting Candler School of Theology in Atlanta and, in the process, speaking at the graduation ceremony for the women's prison seminary program there.)

(P.S. My stylistic preference for blog post titles with every word capitalized, like the title of a chapter, article, or book, comes out oddly in a post like this one, doesn't it? In my liberal gobs of free time, I'll have to give that some serious thought.)

  1. Sorry Brad. I did think of you when I read this book, so I guess you can add me to the list.

  2. Ha -- you're the one whose review alerted me! You're the one person who doesn't owe me a deeply personal, Jensonian apology. I blame everyone else.

  3. Phew. That's a load of my mind.

    It's a great little book. I'm sure you'll love it.

  4. Yes, I Really Can See What You Mean About Those Capitalised Titles.

  5. I would have told you, Brad, but I learned the same way you did !

    Seriously, for an outfit with "Publicity" in its name, the ALPB is the worst...

    For capitalizing, maybe the German convention of Names and Nouns would work...
