Drs. Lee Johnson, J.P. Mosley, Jr., and Maynard Koerner have collaborated to produce Heidelberg Seminary’s first audio podcast, From the Classroom. Host Johnson says, “We are going to do a series of podcasts on worship.” What is unique about this podcast that might set it apart from other theological podcasts is that the focus will be on what originates from the classroom. Often scholars will detach themselves from the classroom and then pontificate on esoteric theological loci that is germane to their expertise but out of reach of laypeople’s ears. Since the professors at Heidelberg are pastors, the topics will have a decidedly pastoral bent.
One objective with From the Classroom is to keep the subject matter real and accessible to the listening audience so that listeners can sense how the rich material being communicated in the classroom truly connects to church life. Seminary President Koerner observes, “listeners are getting an authentic and meaningful picture of theological content being taught
from the classroom from which they can connect doctrine and life.” From the Classroom can be heard from the seminary’s website and FB page.
