I have been a Lutheran Christian for 56 years and a Lutheran pastor for almost 28. I can answer most general questions about Luther, Lutheran History, Lutheran Theology, and a Lutheran approach to Biblical Interpretation. I am ELCA, for those who know what that means, and I tend to be moderate theologically. I hope that I can converse with those that are either more conservative or liberal than I, and especially with those who are really just seeking.
Pastors are "generalists" and generally have a working knowledge on many subjects. We are also used to working with a variety of answers from a variety of people. I teach a great deal, especially in the area of the New Testament. I particularly enjoy the Pauline literature. I have a PhD in New Testament and my dissertation was on II Corinthians.
I have been a member of the Society of Biblical Literature, an international gathering of biblical scholars and teachers, since the late 1980s.
I have written a few book reviews for the journal, "Lutheran Quarterly."
I have a B.A. from Pacific Lutheran University in Religion (Biblical Studies)and a Master of Divinity from Wartburg Theological Seminary. I also have PhD in New Testament.

Carol: Thank you for your question. Your premise sounds like it could be the beginning of an very interesting read. To answer your question, yes, generally a pastor in a parish setting would contact
Charles: My apologies. I took much this post-Easter week off and neglected to answer your initial question. Luther's treatise, "On the Jews and Their Lies" is admittedly a problematic work. It
Mary: Thank you for your question. The WELS and ELCA denominations of Lutherans were never actually together, but came from different immigrant stock in the 19th and 20th centuries. Probably no
Judy: Thank you for your question. I will begin by saying that we are straying into an area (Old Testament interpretation) that I am not fully expert in, so I am not aware of the complete arguments
Tammi: Thank you for your question. First, let me say how very sorry I am to hear of your situation. I sounds as if you have been through a great deal of stress and grief. I pray things get better
