Concordia Seminary Announces Winter Lay Bible Institute

Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, will host its winter 2007 Lay Bible Institute from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on Wednesday evenings, Jan. 10, 17, 24, 31, 2007, in Sieck Hall on the Seminary campus. “The Lord of the Creation” will be presented by Prof. Thomas Egger, assistant professor of exegetical theology at Concordia Seminary.

In this Lay Bible Institute offering, participants will examine the Bible’s teachings concerning God as the maker of heaven and earth in contrast with human theories of the origin of life and the universe. Participants will explore what Scripture says concerning issues such as God’s involvement with His creation, the existence of miracles and the importance of the work of God the Creator.

Previously, he served as pastor of Zion Lutheran Church, Storm Lake, Iowa (2000-2005); and as a guest instructor at Concordia Lutheran Seminary, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada (1999).
