You might like to go read Pastor Bror Erickson's post at Utah Lutheran on the new translation completed by him of the Giertz "The Knights of Rhodes". The book is now available.
I haven't read it yet but it must be a winner, knowing the quality of Giertz's thoughts and writing. Recently Bror featured a different summary of the book on his blog. Maybe we can link to that, too.
The publisher also has an interesting website. They kindly sold me 5 books at 40% off.
