In the Company of Preachers CDs

This series was created by Luther Seminary from the conferences called In the Company of Preachers held 2007 through January 2012. Each CD includes  presentations on the topic listed as well as sample sermons related to that topic.
This collection of sermons offers preachers both a continuing education element and an invitation to be renewed in their own faith and ministry through the preaching of others.

Luther Seminary biblical preaching faculty and guests provide teaching comments, paired with sermons that reflect the theme. All of the sermons were preached during Luther Seminary's daily worship in the Chapel of the Incarnation.
