Dr. Mark Allan Powell, is a Lutheran pastor and Bible professor at Trinity Lutheran Seminary, Columbus, Ohio. In this seven session video series Powell invites you to explore seven important questions about Lutherans and the Bible. He does not prescribe “the Lutheran way" to read the Bible nor does he dismiss the way you may have come to understand the Bible. Instead Powell presents a variety of Lutheran perspectives for interpreting the Bible. Through Powell's rich discussions you will discover answers to questions you have always had about the Bible. Included HERE (scroll down to How Lutherans Interpret the Bible) is a robust study guide and additional support material. The study guide offers 3 suggested formats for use: 60 minute adult study; 90 minute adult study; and 30-45 minute Committee Starters for Congregational Leadership.
