Whew! At long last, the updating of Starck's classic book of prayer has been shipped off to CPH - a month and a half before it was due, no less. Hopefully they'll be happy with it, and other folks will be blessed with those beautiful words that have filled my days for the last year. Starck's Prayer Book gives the lie to the notion that Lutherans taught simply a legal fiction about justification, and that there was no concern for mystical union. It also is replete with very rich prayer to each person of the Blessed Trinity, acknowledgment of the holy angels, and a powerful confession of human impotence and God's all supplying grace.
