Accomplishments by Mark Mattes

September 30, 2020

Rev. Dr. Mark Mattes, Chair of the Theology and Philosophy Department at Grand View, offered a Foreword to The Story of Jesus: A Mosaic, a book now available from Wipf & Stock, written by his teacher Roy Harrisville at Luther Seminary in St. Paul, MN.  Harrisville is the author of numerous books, but what makes this one interesting is that he is 98 years old!  The book offers a critical investigation of the stories about Jesus and that Jesus told in the New Testament.  More information can be found about the book here.

In addition, on September 28 Mattes gave four presentations on Martin Luther’s theology for the Societas Crucis (Society of the Cross) held at the Institute for Lutheran Theology in Brookings South Dakota.
