Prof Insights: Chad Lakies

Dr. Chad Lakies invites the public to his online workshop, “The Church’s Witness in a Secular Age.” The workshop, part of Concordia Seminary’s Prof Insights: Faculty-Led Workshop Series, will be held July 6-8. Registration is $100. The registration deadline is June 21. “The Christian church (in the United States) is now a minority … leading some to say for that the first time we are officially living in a pagan nation,” Lakies said. “How did we go from a time, say 500 years ago just as the Reformation was getting underway and Christian belief was virtually all there was, to a time when the Christian faith is merely one option among a myriad of others?”

“Why do we teach Greek and Hebrew at the seminary?  Don’t we already have good translations of the Bible?” ... We don’t teach Greek and Hebrew so that the students can produce their own translations of the Bible, but so that they can understand the decisions that the translators have made on their behalf.
