Dr. Edgar Krentz, Christ Seminary-Seminex Professor of New Testament, Emeritus, Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago (LSTC) will speak on Friday, March 5, during the 2004 Hein-Fry Lecture Series at LSTC, 1100 E. 55th St., Chicago.   The theme for the Series is: "Evangelism Today: Lutheran Theology and Practice."

Speaker Profile: Rev. Dr. Edgar Krentz
Dr. Edgar Krentz joined the LSTC Faculty in 1983 as Christ Seminary-Seminex Professor of New Testament, after many years of teaching first at Concordia Seminary and then at Seminex.   The current academic year is his fifty-first year in seminary teaching. In addition to his scholarly writings in NT and his long and distinguished teaching career, he has directed two libraries, served as associate director of the archaeological excavation at Caesarea Maritima in Palestine, chaired the Bible Division, and served as acting dean.   Since his "retirement" in 1998, he has been highly sought as a teacher and lecturer, and in recent years he's divided his time between PLTS and LSTC.   Dr. Barbara Rossing's year-long leave last year and LSTC's request for him to return full-time evoked the familiar response:   "If you need me, I'll be there."   Last September he celebrated 50 years of marriage to Becky with their children and grandchildren.

The Hein-Fry Lecture Series is an endowed theological lecture series that fosters original scholarship and enriches theological dialogue throughout the church. For more information about the Hein-Fry Lecture contact Rev. Julie Ryan at (773) 256-0708.
