Soft Antinomianism: The problem in Lutheran Preaching (Rev. Mark P. Surburg)

Rev. Mark P. Surburg
Rev. Surburg will address problems in current Lutheran preaching. Lutheran preaching today is plagued by an inability, and even a refusal, to exhort, admonish and teach in sermons about how Christians are to live because of what Christ has done for us. This does not reflect what is found in Scripture, in the Lutheran Confessions, or in Luther.


The Rev. Mark Surburg is pastor at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, Marion, IL. He received his B.A. from Concordia College, Ann Arbor, MI. and attended Concordia Seminary, St. Louis where he received Master of Divinity and Master of Sacred Theology degrees. He has published articles in the Concordia Journal, Concordia Theological Quarterly, and Logia: A Journal of Lutheran Theology. He served as a consulting scholar for Concordia Publishing House’s Lutheran Study Bible and was a contributor to Lutheran Service Book: Companion to the Services.
