I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. 1 Timothy 2:1-4

Progress in Publishing. Volume 8 of Luther's Sermons Is Available. Gems Is Close.

All Kindle ebook versions will be free, starting with the Sermons and Gems.

Volume 8 of Luther's Sermons is done, color, black/white, plus the Kindle ebook.

Now Janie Sullivan is getting the Gems Mined from Luther's Sermons completed for Amazon and Kindle.

Discussions with Amazon/Kindle led me to decide on making all the Kindle editions free of charge. That will start with all the Sermons and the Gems. The rest of the titles will set as "free" over time.

Reasoning? Publishing is just part of the teaching done through Bethany Lutheran Church. Those who want research tools today would like them available on the computer and portable, from one device to another. Making them available for free will end any obstacles for college and seminary students who want a bigger library.

When I write Creation Gardening articles, I start with Kindle ebooks for quick quoting and citing. Kindle includes the citation with the material marked to copy and paste.

But Wait - There's More
I will create a free DropBox folder for pdf. The folder will be a little library of publications. Duplicating the titles has some advantages -

  1. It provides another copy.
  2. Finding something on a PDF is fast and easy. 
  3. Some people may like easy access to some quotable material from a PDF. 
  4. Thy Strong Word, like many of my books, has the complete citation with each quotation. 
Alternative sources for free distribution will be considered, too. does that, and I have freebies there.

 Copy and paste Luther, Melanchthon, and Chemnitz -
not Groeschel, Osteen, and Kelm.
