A New Theological Journal for Lutherans. UPDATED WITH DISCOUNT CODE

AroundTheWordPr. Wolfmueller announced at our conference a great discount for fans of BJS for our journal.  Enter the code BJS15 to receive 15% off your order.

Last week a new journal was released titled “Around the Word”.  Rev. Bryan Wolfmueller of Hope Lutheran in Aurora, CO, co-host of Table Talk Radio, and a speaker at this weekend’s BJS Conference has been the man behind this journal (his title is “General Editor of Theological Awesomeness”).  He has recruited many writers to contribute articles, devotions, bible studies, and a variety of unique ideas for his journal, including “Napkin Notes”, Theological Trends, Art History and many other things.  His devotions are also set up to be used in the home and the congregation.  Over on Pr. Wolfmueller’s facebook page he has some introductory videos on the journal.

Each issue will have a general theme.  This first issue is centering on “Suffering and the Christian Life”.   It is 108 pages of solid theological content and sells for only $5 for a digital copy.

Here is the introduction to the journal from Pr. Wolfmueller:

Welcome to Around the Word, a quarterly journal of Biblical Theology for the Lutheran family, whether you’re a family of one or twenty. Our work is to publish a quarterly theological and devotional journal that extols the Lord’s gifts of Law and Gospel for the laity of the Lutheran Church.
Around the Word paints a Biblical and joyful picture of Lutheran teaching and life. We want the world to know that Lutherans have their Bibles open, and that we believe with simplicity what the Lord speaks there; that we are thoughtful and generous, historical and current; that we pray and sing and work hard; and that theological integrity is the best way that we can serve the church at large.
Lutheran teaching lets the Law and the Gospel echo in the full voice with which God speaks it, and we are on the lookout for error because we love to hear the truth, the life-giving voice of Jesus. Lutherans care about their families and their neighbors and the world, both in this life and in the life to come. So we are working, in the pages of this journal, to recover the joy and delight of doctrine, of the Gospel.
We hope that you find in the articles, Bible Studies, and devotions that follow a large dose of Biblical comfort; that God’s promises leap off of every page into your heart; and that there is joy in hearing the Good Shepherd’s voice. We also hope to surprise you, to say something you haven’t heard, something helpful for your prayers.
Many parts of this journal were designed for busy families who want to learn more theology, but don’t have time to devote to text books and longer, more scholarly pursuits. The articles and Bible studies are “bite-sized,” but they are packed with punch, chock full of the Lord’s Word.
We would love your feedback. What is helpful, and what isn’t, and what you would like to see on these pages. This journal, after all, is for you, the Lord’s dear Christian, and is offered in confident hope that the Lord’s Word will continue to do its marvelous work of bringing us life and joy and salvation.

A New Theological Journal for Lutherans. UPDATED WITH DISCOUNT CODE — 16 Comments

  1. “Theological Journal for Lutherans.”

    A Refused Article! Pastors/laypeople read the above article by Dr. David Kaufmann on the scientific bankruptcy of macroevolution and how illogical theistic evolution is. The article was submitted January 10, 2012 and refused a year later on January 13, 2013 by Concordia Journal of the St. Louis Seminary, because “it does not fit into our plans for upcoming issues.”

    The Concordia Journal has published articles by Matthew Becker of Valparaiso University, a leading evolutionist in the LCMS whom the LCMS bureaucracy refuses to discipline. Becker remains on the LCMS clergy roster.

  2. LCMS Quotes,
    Did Around the Word refuse to also print the article by Dr. David Kaufmann? Or are you just pointing out how some Journals strangely publish an article from someone like Becker while refusing to print an article by Kaufmann?

  4. The only reason I can think of that CJ should have printed an article by Becker if they were having an issue that debated women’s ordiantion and Becker gave a response for the pro-ordination side.

  5. Is the very capable Mr. Corzine an ordained clergyperson now, or is his title being used to indicated “Reverend Candidate” or some other such thing?

    I welcome “Around the World” and pray it’s more reliably Lutheran than the Concordia Journal, which published a tribute (written by AD President Benke) to his mentor, a Lutheran pastor who left the LCMS to become a priest in the Roman Catholic Church.

  7. There doesn’t seem to be a place for the discount code. Am I missing something?

    I am looking forward to reading another theologically sound journal; Issues, Etc. journal being the other one.

  8. Well done!

    I just downloaded the first issue this evening and have read several of the articles and skimmed the rest. I found Amtrack Ignition particularly engaging, Santification and Suffering, How to Listen to a Sermon, and The Demons particularly interesting. I’m certain that I will read the rest over the coming weeks and even reread articles again as I’m sure there are subtleties I’ve missed.

    Rather than the “Buy Now” button in the right hand frame, I selected the Purchase link from the green band along the top and on that page is the offer for the $5 digital edition which is purchased through the “Add to Cart” button below the “Purchase” article. Then go through the Paypal checkout process.

  10. “Added to Cart” ~ I like that I recognize the names of some of the authors. And the price is more than reasonable.
