Interested in exercising your brain & your theological thinking? I am! So I’m happy to share that the Weidner Institute is presenting a class on Anselm’s Doctrine of God taught by Dr. Nathan Greeley.
Here’s the announcement from the source, the Lutheran website Just and Sinner.
The Weidner Institute
I haven’t taken any classes through the Weidner Institute, though I applaud it’s goal of providing theological education even to those who are not pursuing a seminary degree. Note: that’s us!
Here’s the About Us for the institute in quotation:
The Weidner Institute exists to provide theological education both to those who are interested in learning, but not in gaining a Seminary degree, as well as for pastors and other church workers who desire to have continued education. This is done through specialized courses offered online on a variety of subjects, along with single-evening seminars. They range from introductory courses to more advanced topics.
Along with these events, the Institute is developing a series of books which compile essays on various theological topics from a practical and academic perspective. We are also interested in the future publication of dissertations and other academic theological texts which approach their subject from a Lutheran perspective. We are now receiving submissions which can be sent to [email protected].The Weidner Institute is named after the nineteenth-century American Lutheran Theologian Revere Franklin Weidner. Weidner wrote numerous books on systematic theology, Biblical theology, and ethics. Within the age of revivalism, he was a proponent of Confessional Lutheran theology and identity, and he communicated this through teaching and writing. At the Weidner Institute, we honor his legacy through a similar promotion of Confessionalism in an age of confusion in the church.
