Summer LAY BIBLE INSTITUTE – Saturday, Aug 20

Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, will host its next Lay Bible Institute on Saturday, August 20, 2011, from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. called “Are We Still Fighting the Crusades?” This workshop will be led by Dr. Paul Robinson, associate professor and chair of the department of historical theology.

Crusade is still a powerful word. Whether applied to current armed conflicts or used as anti-Christian polemic, certain ideas and images of the crusades seem to be alive and well. But what were the crusades, really? This course will define crusade, examine the religious origins of the crusading movement, recount the conquest of the Holy Land (as well as its subsequent loss), and explore the expansion of the crusading idea beyond the Middle Ages.

The cost for the Lay Bible Institute is $20. It is open to both pastors and laypeople. To register or for more information, contact continuing education and parish services at 314-505-7486 or ce@csl.edu, or visit the Seminary’s website at www.csl.edu.
