The American Mind: About the Cover

Concordia Seminary Press is incredibly grateful to the artist He Qi for his permission to use his work, “Freedom and Peace,” on the cover of The American Mind Meets the Mind of Christ. It gives profound expression to the thesis and content of the book.

The artwork is significant because, although it is deeply religious, it is the only non-biblical piece of art in He Qi’s professional oeuvre. When we had the opportunity to interview He Qi (pronounced huh chee) prior to his exhibition at the Seminary last fall, he explained its inspiration and its moving connection to the events of 9/11. See for yourself in the clip below.

You can purchase the book by contacting Concordia Seminary Press at [email protected] or 314-505-7117, in St. Louis at the Concordia Seminary bookstore, or at Amazon.com. The cost is $14.99. Ordering two or more copies directly from the Sem Press includes free shipping.

Paul Raabe reflects on the label “Lutheran” and how, in some contexts, it does not communicate to most Americans. We need to be able to explain ourselves to outsiders in ways intelligible to them. Maybe a church sign should say: “A Gospel-Baptism-Lord’s Supper-Bible-Creedal-Liturgical Church - Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod.” These descriptions are the markers of our church body.

I’m writing this post for two reasons. First and generally, it is simply not helpful when Christians pass along claims about what something in the Bible “really means” when those claims are based on faulty or inaccurate information. Truth matters, and good information is important. Christians...
