Annual Reformation Heritage Lecture Features Rev. Dr. Andrew H. Bartelt

As we mark 500 years since the Reformation, how might the unique strengths of Lutheran theology serve the mission of God’s kingdom come in Jesus Christ—and indeed will they?

These questions will serve as the focal point of Concordia University, St. Paul’s 2017 Reformation Heritage Lecture, “After 500 Years, Does Lutheranism Still Matter?” with guest lecturer, the Rev. Dr. Andrew H. Bartelt. Dr. Bartelt is the Gustav and Sophie Butterbach Professor of Exegetical Theology, Concordia Seminary, St. Louis. He also serves as the Vice Chair of LCMS Commission on Theology and Church Relations, and is an author and public lecturer on topics concerning prophetic literature; the use of biblical languages in ministry; pastoral education and formation; and issues of church and ministry.

The lecture, to be held in Concordia’s Buenger Education Center, on August 29 at 7 p.m., is free and open to the public.
