Lutheran pastors and seminary students working in the Latin America and Caribbean (LAC) region. A resource that helps teach the Biblical jewel of the distinction between, and the application of, Law and Gospel, will be invaluable to our LCMS mission work, as well as to our Lutheran partner churches throughout many LAC countries. We thank God for the generosity of the producers of Good News (Defiance, MO). They allow the VDMA Project to share electronic copies of their magazines within the LAC region at no cost to the recipients.
Many pastors and seminary students in the Latin America and Caribbean (LAC) region are expressing their thanks and gratitude for another great resource provided through the VDMA Project: The Lord’s Supper by Rev. Dr. John Stephenson.
Pastors and seminary students throughout the Latin America and Caribbean Region (LAC) are receiving a treat today in the form of a new Spanish translation of Good News magazine: The Healing Medicine of God for You. Distributed electronically by the VMDA Project, this magazine comes close on the heels of Your Good Shepherd, another new Spanish issue of Good News sent out earlier in September.
Today Deaconess Cheryl Naumann, Director of the VDMA Project, announced the publication of Spanish translations for two more volumes of the Confessional Lutheran Dogmatics Series: The Lord’s Supper by Dr. John Stephenson and Law and Gospel and the Means of Grace by Dr. David Scaer.
In 1984, Dr. Robert Preus, president of Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne, initiated the creation of the Confessional Lutheran Dogmatics series, to supplement Francis Pieper’s Christian Dogmatics. The 13-volume series was then produced by Luther Academy, an organization that promotes confessional Lutheran theology and research through conferences and publications designed to assist the church in proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the world.
Quite a number of our Latin American Lutheran pastors serve two or three or more congregations at the same time. With the nearest pastor often living several hours away, opportunities for these men to be built up in the Word and to have fellowship time with other pastors are crucial. Luther Academy encourages these opportunities for our pastors.
The mission statement of Luther Academy is as follows: Luther Academy promotes genuine, confessional Lutheran theology and research through conferences, scholarly exchanges, and publications that assist the Church both to preserve and to proclaim to the world the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the only saving faith.
