The Epistles of St. Peter and St. Jude Preached and Explained

Many people have a skewed view of Martin Luther because they've only been exposed to his polemic writings. However, if you really want to know Luther's heart, you need to read some of his sermons, letters, and commentaries. In the latter category, his commentary on Galatians is the most famous, but this set of commentaries on the epistles of Peter and Jude may be an even better place to start. Luther's pastoral concern shines through every page.

Outside of its historical significance, it holds up as a good commentary in its own right. Luther clearly and practically expounds the message of these epistles with excellent application to the Christian life.

Halloween Fun

Well, folks it's Halloween time again. Time to watch the Great Pumpkin and that Garfield special with the scary old man in the chair. It's also about time for me to remind my fellow Christians that Halloween is in no way a pagan holiday. Here's a great article that I had never run into before to add to the list as well. Halloween: More Christian than Pagan.

I also wanted to take this time to make mention of how awesome my kids are. Not only did they decide to go for nerdy Halloween costumes, they also zeroed in on a particular episode from Doctor Who as their theme. They are dressing as "The Day of the Doctor," the 50th anniversary special.

The Day of the Doctor

L-R: The Eleventh Doctor, Queen Elizabeth I (or the Queen Elizabeth Zygon imposter. She would never tell us for sure.), and the Tenth Doctor.
