Dr. Erik Herrmann, associate professor of Historical Theology at Concordia Seminary and director of Concordia Theology, leads a discussion about the new publication, Always Reforming: Reflections on Martin Luther and Biblical Studies from Lexham Press, as well as Luther, Lutheranism and Calvinism. The book is a festschrift, or collection of essays, in honor of Dr. Mark Seifrid, who is professor of Exegetical Theology at Concordia Seminary and also a pre-eminent scholar of the New Testament letters of Paul. The discussion includes the book’s editors, Dr. Robert Plummer, who is the Collin and Evelyn Aikman Professor of Biblical Studies at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Ken., and Dr. Channing Crisler, who is the associate professor of New Testament at Anderson University in Anderson, S.C. Plummer and Crisler are former students of Seifrid at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, where Seifrid taught for more than two decades before he joined Concordia Seminary. “We are fortunate to be two of his former students,” Crisler says. “But he’s had quite an influence on countless students. We just wanted to find a way that we could honor him. If you know Dr. Seifrid, you know he’s a great New Testament scholar and he also has a great love for Luther. We tried to combine those two things” in the book. Plummer calls Seifrid a man “worthy of honor” who has “faithfully served the Lord.” Learn more at Concordia Theology.
