    There seems to be a problem with the Internet Monk-link, it keeps referring me to the link above…

  • Andy says:

    I was just about to mention that. i’ll try and google.

  • Steve K. says:

    Thanks for the link love, Andrew!

  • Pastor David says:

    Thanks for stopping by – I think what I am getting glimpses of in the ELCA seminaries will start to affect others before long. And thanks for the link.

  • Walt Kaiser spoke at a luncheon here (TEDS-Chicago) a month ago, and said that the face of North American seminary will be radically different in only 5-7 years. It’s simply not affordable, and our churches are suffering for a lack of equipped ministers of the Word because of it. Anti-intellectual and non-intellectual Christianity cannot withstand secularism. The more ‘stupid’ the Christian faith looks (and it’s looking increasingly stupid in Western culture, particularly pop media), the more it will be consigned to the ‘feel-good’ (read: fanatical) realm, playing into Marx’s stereotype (which is the stereotype held by the typical college-educated gen x-ers and millenials today).
    In short, I’m worried. This is no time for skimping on theological rigor (if ever there was one).

  • Pastor David says:

    Following the discussion about seminary (and denominational) finances, a follow-up is posted here

  • brodie says:
