Closing 6.3 and Opening 6.4

Michaelmas: Closing Issue 6.3 and Opening Issue 6.4

This post will mark the last entry in QBR 6.3, Apostles' Tide,
and the opening entry in Angels' Tide, QBR 6.4
With the beginning of Volume 6,
we intend to discontinue making pdf editions of this blog
(unless there are overwhelming requests for them).

In response to an expressed need,
we now have two sub blogs that both feed into
Liturgy, Hymnody, and Pulpit Quarterly Book Review
The content of
should appear to remain the same. 
Readers that wish to receive only our forwards
can now also go to
Readers that wish to only receive
our original book and resource reviews
and be notified of new resources that we have received
may go to,
the LHP Lutheran Book Review blog.
We DO plan to make pdf versions of LHP LBR.
