The Cambridge Declaration (Alive and Kicking)

20 years after the Cambridge Declaration was first released, it’s worth asking:

—Is the Protestant Reformation over?

—Aren’t the five Reformation “solas” a footnote in religious history with little to no bearing on modern ministry and life?

—Isn’t the Cambridge Declaration  (published 20 years ago) yesterday’s leftovers?

We don’t think so, and we’re doing something exciting about it.

Specifically, we’re working on a new book with the following authors:

  • Michael Horton
  • James Montgomery Boice (previously published content)
  • David F. Wells
  • Aimee Byrd
  • Carl Trueman
  • (and more)

Here are some teaser promotional cards:

What’s that I hear you ask?

—Who’s the publisher?

—When will it be released?

—Are there other authors in the works?

—Why does this matter?

—Why should I care?

—Will it be a bestseller on Amazon?

—Will there be a blockbuster tour of the book’s authors coming my way in the very near future?

Great questions.

Playmobil’s Fastest Selling Toy Ever Is…Martin Luther?

This is simply too good to be true.

A good friend informed me last night that German toymaker Playmobil sold out of the first run of the Martin Luther figure in record time.

My disbelief turned to giddy excitement when I later learned or remembered:

  1. That demand is high enough for Playmobil to make a Luther figurine;
  2. That I am mostly of German descent;
  3. That I was raised Lutheran;
  4. That I’m still unashamedly and happily Protestant;
  5. That I’m a happy Protestant;
  6. That a friend knew I cared enough about Luther for him to inform me of this phenomenon;
  7. That Playmobil is making a second batch of Luther figurines due in April;
  8. That my doll will soon have a suitable companion.
