Faith Lutheran Church and School of Plano today announced it will host a presentation by renowned author Dr. Gene Edward Veith on Thursday, February 3 at 7 p.m. Dr. Veith will discuss his book Postmodern Times: A Christian Guide to Contemporary Thought and Culture.

Faith Lutheran Church and School of Plano today announced it will host a presentation by renowned author Dr. Gene Edward Veith on Thursday, February 3 at 7 p.m.  Dr. Veith will discuss his book Postmodern Times: A Christian Guide to Contemporary Thought and Culture.

“We are pleased to welcome Dr. Veith to our campus,” said Faith Lutheran Church Associate Pastor Rev. Stephen W. Kieser, who also serves as Headmaster for Faith Lutheran School.  “His book, Postmodern Times, is a must-read for all Christians.”

In Postmodern Times, Dr. Veith reminds readers that it is important to understand present day thought and culture. Relativist and postmodern ideas have gripped the nation's universities, which turn out today's lawyers, judges, writers, journalists, teachers, and other culture-shapers. Truth, meaning, and individual identity do not exist in the postmodern mindset. But Christ has called us to proclaim the gospel to a culture grappling with postmodernism.

Faith Lutheran Church members recently enjoyed a Bible study focusing on Dr. Veith’s book The Spirituality of the Cross, and Faith Lutheran School’s high school scholars read Postmodern Times during their course of study at the classical Lutheran school, so inviting Dr. Veith to the church and school was a natural fit, Kieser added.

Gene Edward Veith, Jr., is a writer and a retired literature professor.  He is Provost Emeritus at Patrick Henry College and the Director of the Cranach Institute at Concordia Theological Seminary in Ft. Wayne, Indiana.  He previously served as Culture Editor of WORLD MAGAZINE and Professor of English and Dean of the School of Arts & Sciences at Concordia University Wisconsin. He is the author of more than 25 book including Postmodern Times: A Christian Guide to Contemporary Thought and Culture, The Spirituality of the Cross: The Way of the First EvangelicalsClassical Education, and God at Work: Your Christian Vocation in All of Life.

Dr. Veith was born in Oklahoma in 1951. He graduated from the University of Oklahoma in 1973 and received a Ph.D. in English from the University of Kansas in 1979.  He has honorary doctorates from Concordia Theological Seminary (2005), Concordia University California (2014), and Patrick Henry College (2016).  He has taught at Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College and was a Visiting Professor at Wheaton College, Gordon College, and Regent College (Vancouver).  He was also a Visiting Lecturer at the Estonian Institute of Humanities in Tallinn, Estonia. He and his wife Jackquelyn have three grown children and twelve grandchildren.  They live in Blackwell, Oklahoma.

Faith Lutheran Church of Plano is a member of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, and the congregation was founded in 1964. With Jesus at the center of all that is taught and preached, Faith Lutheran Church is faithful to the Scriptures and to the Lutheran Confessions.  For more information, please visit www.faithplano.org or call 972.423.744.7

“Those being named Commended Students have demonstrated outstanding potential for academic success,” said a spokesperson for NMSC.  “These students represent a valuable national resource.  Recognizing their accomplishments as well as the key role their schools play in their academic development is vital to the advancement of educational excellence in our nation.  We hope that this recognition will help broaden their educational opportunities and encourage them as they continue their pursuit of academic success.”
