Book Blurbs: Let the Gospel Lead

Dr. Travis Scholl, managing editor of Seminary Publications at Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, leads a Concordia Journal discussion about the publication, Let the Gospel Lead: Essays & Sermons in Honor of Dale A. Meyer, with President Emeritus Meyer, Director of Concordia Theology Dr. Erik Herrmann and Provost Dr. Douglas L. Rutt. The book was published in 2020 in recognition Meyer and his contributions to the church and his retirement from service as Concordia Seminary’s 10th president last year. The festschrift, or honorary volume of essays, is available for purchase at the Seminary’s online store, Concordia Publishing House, and Amazon. “We put this festschrift together in record time,” Scholl says to Meyer in the video. “One of the reasons that was able to happen is that every author that we asked to contribute said yes. We didn’t have a single person say no. That’s a testament not only to your leadership but to your churchmanship, as we’ve talked about, and your collegiality. So many relationships that you have, Dale, in the church, in the broader church, is a blessing to us all.”

“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.
