Save the date for Professor Wengert's final public lecture at LTSP!

The Rev. Dr. Timothy J. Wengert
We know many of you - our alumni, friends, and colleagues - will want to be present for Professor Timothy Wengert's final public lecture at The Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia (LTSP), offered as a gift to his students of the past quarter century. The lecture, titled "The Final Word: Martin Luther's Freedom of a Christian for Today's Church," will be presented in the Schaeffer-Ashmead Chapel on the LTSP campus on Tuesday, November 19, 2013 at 11:30 am. More information coming soon, including registration details. While you'll want to be there in person, the lecture will also be live streamed and recorded for those who are not able to come to Philadelphia.

Overflow seating is available - click here to register. The lecture will be live streamed and recorded - go to for more information.

In his lecture, Dr. Wengert will address Martin Luther's famous tract, The Freedom of a Christian from 1520, which provides one of the most succinct summaries of Luther's theology. In the course of editing this work for publication in Augsburg Fortress's The Essential Luther project, Prof. Wengert has discovered new insights into Luther's approach to public ministry - insights that can also assist ministry in today's church.

Dr. Wengert is the Ministerium of Pennsylvania Professor of Church History at LTSP, teaching primarily in the fields of Reformation history and the Lutheran Confessions. A parish pastor for over seven years in Minnesota and Wisconsin, he received his doctorate from Duke University in 1984 and joined Philadelphia's faculty in 1989.
