Dear Friend in Ministry,
We have great news to share!
Daniel Erlander has written and illustrated several books that have resonated with Lutherans for decades. Their visual appeal, theological content, and inviting tone welcome each reader into moments of delight, discovery, and the underlying assurance of God’s deep and everlasting love for us. Generations of Lutherans can point to these publications and tell vivid stories about how Daniel Erlander’s voice has helped them better understand what it means to embrace their Christian faith.
At Augsburg Fortress, we’re deeply committed to our new role of stewarding what Daniel Erlander has created. Since 2018, we have been the sole distributor for his publications. Additionally, we’re expanding on these works in innovative ways. So far, we have created curricula based on A Place for You, Come to the Water, and Baptized We Live, as well as creating a set of booklets called A Lutheran Welcome. Sign up for information about future releases of resources that expand on Daniel Erlander’s work!
