Lenten Preaching Workshop

Monday, January 19, 2015
8:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

Singing with the Exiles

Although the entire book of Isaiah pulsates with richness and depth, chapters 40–55 contain some of the best-known, most-cherished and theologically significant texts in the Bible. This seminar, based upon Dr. Reed Lessing’s Concordia Publishing House commentary on these chapters, will employ Singing with the Exiles, his Lenten Sermon Series based on Isaiah 40–55 to be published by Concordia Publishing House (CPH) in November 2014. These resources include worship services, sermons, Bible Studies and daily devotions, making this a one-stop seminar that will equip the pastor to lead his congregation through these amazing chapters, and through them from the cross and the empty tomb.

PRESENTER: The Rev. Dr. Reed Lessing was on the faculty of Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, Missouri, from 1999–2013. He currently serves as senior pastor at St. Michael Lutheran Church in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Reed’s books include Interpreting Discontinuity: Isaiah’s Tyre Oracle (Eisenbrauns, 2004), Jonah (CPH, 2007), Amos (CPH, 2009), Isaiah 40-55 (CPH, 2011), Prepare the Way of the Lord: An Introduction to the Old Testament (co-authored with Andrew Steinmann, CPH, 2013) and Isaiah 56-66 (CPH, 2014).

FEE: $40.00, which includes lunch.
