Description

Course Description

What does preaching and catechesis look like in the New Testament and in the Patristic period? The Church is entering a period of time which looks more and more like the early days of Christianity. What must pastors consider as they engage in preaching and catechesis in a pluralist society? What does the hearer need to hear? The course will consider major ideological shifts which have taken place in the Western world and how these shifts have affected the piety and faith of Lutherans today. Major Greek themes predominate in the New Testament as the apostles preach and teach. These themes will be examined in the Greek New Testament. Further, select Patristic homilies will be studied with some consideration as to how Patristic themes may aid our preaching and catechesis today.


Rev. Chad Kendall

Rev. Kendall has been pastor of Trinity Lutheran Church, Lowell, Indiana, for 10 years. He served previously as associate pastor at Immanuel Lutheran Church, Spirit Lake, Iowa, for six years. He is a student in the PhD in Missiology Program at Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne (CTSFW), Indiana. His thesis will consider how the Church should live in the midst of the post-modern, secular America in the 21st Century and how the Church will engage the 21st Century American culture. Kendall serves as an adjunct professor at CTSFW and at Concordia University, Chicago, in the Master of Arts in Religion Program.
