    Pete Enns Part 2: How the Bible Actually Works

    Pete Enns returns to join us in this second installment of a two episode series as we explore questions related to his latest book, How the Bible Actually Works.  Topics include sharing a changing faith with others, how the work of theology is applying scripture to the reality of the present, and changes in how our current knowledge of human sexuality is factored into reading the writing of St. Paul.  Pete’s comment about the genetics of homosexuality probably refers to the study published in Science, 2018 Oct 26;362(6413):385-38.

    Seminex as Seen by Pastor Art Otto

    Seminex as Seen by Pastor Art Otto

    Seminex, a seminary in exile, occurred  in 1974, when Concordia Seminary lost its faculty and students in what became the seminal event of a larger division that affected the entire Lutheran Church Missouri Synod.  Art Otto had graduated from the seminary just 9 years earlier and was still working with Concordia students at a Missouri Synod church nearby when it all hit the fan.  Art shares with us his perspective as a student of the same Concordia Seminary professors who taught from the historical-critical method of the study of scripture.
