Description

Confessing Christ and Living His Mission: Pre-Constantinian Theology and Practice for Our Post-Constantinian World

Many would argue that we live in a post-church, post-Christian culture marked by increasing hostility to Christian theology, waning protection of political freedoms of the Christian church, increasing biblical illiteracy and the list goes on. How should Christ’s church conduct itself in such a climate? This workshop will address how we got to this place and then look at where we go from here. The workshop will explore various frameworks to understand the interaction of Christianity and culture. Participants will then explore how the early Christian church engaged a culture similar to our own. Examples from the early church will be given to demonstrate their two-fold approach to the issue of Christ and culture: that is, confessing Christ and living His mission. The workshop also will address the use of early Christian writings in preaching and teaching.

Dr. Benjamin Haupt

Associate Professor of Practical Theology and Associate Provost, Concordia Seminary, St. Louis

Dr. Benjamin Haupt focuses his work these days on what it means to be a Christian in an emerging post-Constantinian culture that is coming to characterize Europe and America. This interest arose out of his work in parishes in the LCMS Florida-Georgia District and has been reinforced by his academic studies in Europe. His dissertation work on Tertullian’s text of the New Testament led him to explore more deeply the writings of the pre-Constantinian church for guidance for how we might live faithfully in a post-Constantinian culture today.
