Welcome to ALTS

This blog will focus on topics of interest to our seminary (American Lutheran Theological Seminary—ALTS). Thus, the topics will range from overall theological questions, exegetical, doctrinal (systematics), historical, and practical theology. Posts will be by professors and students of the seminary and relate to current studies or interests.

Be patient as I get this underway. But look for interesting topics, lively discussion, and churchmanship in all we say, write, and do. May this be pleasing to the Lord and uplifting for those who participate and read.
