Coming from CPH — The Apocrypha: Lutheran Edition with Notes – A Tantalizing Tidbit of the Feast to Come

I found this posted over on Cyberbrethren — Pastor Paul McCain speaking:

I received today yet another packet of The Apocrypha: Lutheran Edition with Notes. This one happened to contain the Table of Contents I thought I would tantalize and, yes, tease you, with a look at it. As you can see, this is a very substantial and highly significant presentation of the Apocrypha. Frankly, there is no other edition of the Apocrypha like this one available from any publisher or church body of which I’m aware. I think this is really going to be a well received volume and generate a lot of interest. It will be out Fall 2012. Be sure to hit the “read more” link to see the entire Table of Contents.

Here is the menu of the feast that awaits you…..
