In the fall of 2018, Messiah Area B Bible class group began hosting a special study of C.F.W. Walther's seminal work, "The Proper Distinction Between Law and Gospel." Generations of Lutherans have found inspiration and edification in this vital book. Professor Paul Naumann will be leading the study, which will take place Sundays at 6:30 p.m. in the Academic Center Library on the Immanuel College campus. Anyone interested is invited to attend. Students are asked to print out and complete the Student Handout below prior to each class. If you don't have a copy of the book, you can also read online (or print out and read) the text of each evening lecture given below; the page numbers referenced in the text and handouts are accurate for both the 1928 edition (black cover) or 1986 edition (blue cover). Videos of the classes themselves will be added as they occur. NOTE: THIS CLASS IS NOW RECESSED FOR THE SUMMER AND WILL RESUME IN SEPTEMBER, 2019.
