Most Urgent Texts for Our Time

April 24-26, 2017 Bible

Our communities face a remarkable array of challenges and crises – political, social and especially theological. In keeping with Luther Seminary’s commitment to engaging both the word and the world, this year’s Signature Bible Course will focus on texts that the Bible faculty consider to be the most urgent for this hour in the church’s life. Special attention will be paid to the use of these texts in Christian ministry, especially for purposes of teaching and preaching.

Consider attending the Faith and Creation lecture by Ellen Davis, Amos Ragan Kearns Professor of Bible and Practical Theology, Duke Divinity School. The lecture is on Tuesday evening, April 25, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. in the Chapel of the Incarnation.
