Lay Bible Institute set for Aug. 7

One-day seminar explores book of Job

The role of suffering in the life of the believer, and the ensuing crisis of faith and ministry that can follow, is the focus of Concordia Seminary’s Aug. 7 Lay Bible Institute, “When Things Fall Apart: Job’s Frightening Journey,” led by Dr. Henry Rowold, professor emeritus of Practical Theology.

During this intensive study of the book of Job, Rowold will help participants examine the dialogue of Job and his friends, and the attempts of people, those suffering and those ministering, to make sense of the difficulties. Participants will explore the conversation between God and Job and the resolution of faith that emerges.

Open to anyone interested in the proclamation of the Gospel, the one-day workshop will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Aug.7 in Sieck Hall 202 on campus, 801 Seminary Place, St. Louis, MO 63105. Registration deadline is July 23. Cost is $20 per person.

The Lay Bible Institute, offered three times a year by Concordia Seminary faculty members, is an ongoing study of the Bible and how it relates to today’s life and events.

For more information or to register, visit csl.edu/lbi or contact Continuing Education at 314-505-7286 or ce@csl.edu.
