Lutheran Witness: February 2024

The February issue of The Lutheran Witness recalls the history of the “Walkout” of all but five professors from Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, 50 years ago this month — including the theological controversies that surrounded it, and why those theological distinctions are still crucial today.

  • How Did We Get Here?: Theological context of the Walkout — David P. Scaer
  • The Historical-Critical Method: A critical look — Timothy H. Maschke
  • What Happened to Natural Law?: The historical-critical method and the loss of meaning — Dean Wenthe
