Christian Wisdom

Luther’s Life and Theology as seen in the Catechisms

Beginning on Tuesday, September 12 at 7:00 pm will offer the latest installment of our ongoing in-depth Bible classes entitled “Christian Wisdom.”

The classes are offered every fall and spring and last for just 10 weeks each. They are taught at the level of a community college course and expect the participants to do some reading and thinking outside of class. This fall’s offering will focus on Luther’s life and theology as seen in the Catechisms. Participants will be given a copy of Luther’s small and large catechisms for the class for free. They will then be given assigned readings each week from those books and also from the book of Galatians.

The classes on Tuesday nights from 7:00 to 8:00 will be a blend of lecture, discussion, and interactive activities meant to supplement and deepen understanding of the readings. The classes will be taught by Rev. David H. Petersen, Redeemer’s senior pastor.  As a supplement to the course this fall, students will be invited to come enjoy some pizza and view the 2003 Luther movie starring Joseph Fienes on Friday, September 15, 6:00 pm.

The class and books are free but registration is required.
