As professor, pastor, and president, Christ has always been at the center of Dean Orrin Wenthe’s confession and practice. His clarity of thought and charity of heart has encouraged and inspired his parishioners, colleagues, and, especially, students entering the pastoral ministry in coming to a deeper understanding of their Lord Christ.
Written in honor of Dr. Wenthe’s forty years of service to Concordia Theological Seminary (Fort Wayne, Indiana), the essays in The Restoration of Creation in Christ illuminate the central accents of his teaching as a biblical theologian about the sacramentality of God’s good creation and how God uses the “stuff” of this world to deliver to us promises that are concrete, real, and even infinite.
Dr. Wenthe will be signing copies of this book at the Fort Wayne Symposia, Wednesday, January 22, at noon outside the bookstore. [Read more…] about Festschrift Honors the Rev. Dr. Dean Wenthe
