“There are many challenges in this office of the Missouri Synod, but there also are many joys, and the joys outweigh the challenges!” LCMS President Matthew C. Harrison exclaimed this as he received copies of three new books recently issued by Concordia Publishing House (CPH), the Synod’s publisher. Surely, the fine, high-quality work of the CPH is a source of joy! President Harrison encourages you to check out the latest offerings from CPH, including the latest in the Concordia Commentary series, 1-3 John, a collection of the letters of John the Apostle; Harrison’s own translation of Martin Luther’s A Simple Way to Pray; and a study edition of the Rev. Dr. C.F.W. Walther’s The Church & the Office of the Ministry. Find these and all of CPH’s products at www.cph.org or 800-325-3040.
