Preachers Studio: Joel Biermann

The journey from text to pulpit can be a long and winding road, filled with false starts, surprising discoveries, and hard choices along the way. On a semi-regular basis, the homiletics faculty of Concordia Seminary invites you to walk the road with the preacher in The Preachers Studio series. Each sermon was preached during chapel services at the Seminary. Afterward, a homiletics professor sits down with the preacher, to talk about the sermon, its preparation and execution, and dialogue about the art of preaching. We welcome you to join in the conversation.

Preacher: Joel Biermann, the Waldemar A. and June Schuette Professor of Systematic Theology

Biermann explains how he developed the sermon, “Things Can Change Quickly” from Matt. 16:21-28, for the chapel service Sept. 6, 2023.

Interviewer: David Schmitt, Gregg H. Benidt Memorial Professor of Homiletics and Literature
