Concordia Seminary celebrates faculty, staff authors

Concordia Seminary, St. Louis honored faculty and staff members who have recently written or contributed to published books at its annual faculty author reception May 17 co-hosted by Concordia Publishing House.

“It’s been said that the Gospel went ‘viral’ in the 16th century in part because the Reformers flooded the market with their publications,” said Dr. Charles Arand, the Seminary’s dean of Theological Research and Publication and the Eugene E. and Nell S. Fincke Graduate Professor of Theology. “In that spirit, the Faculty Author Reception is a joyous time of the year as we celebrate the contributions of the faculty to church and world through their articles and books.”
