Bethany Lutheran College together with Bethany Lutheran Theological Seminary announce the 45th annual Bjarne Wollan Teigen Reformation Lectures to be held on October 25 and 26, 2012. The Lecture Series will explore the topic of Bible translations.

Dr. Cameron MacKenzie of Concordia Lutheran Theological Seminary, Ft. Wayne, Indiana, will speak on the history of Bible translations, especially the work of Martin Luther and the King James Version.

Pres. Paul Wendland of Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary, Mequon, Wisconsin, will address the various challenges posed in translating, "word for word" (formal equivalency), and "thought for thought" (functional equivalency). 

Formal reaction and discussion of the two lectures will follow the second essay presentation.

On Thursday, October 25 at 4:30 p.m. in Trinity Chapel the choirs of Bethany Lutheran College will participate in the annual Reformation Choral Vespers. The Bethany Concert Choir and the Handbell Choir are under the direction of Dennis Marzolf and the Mary Martha Singers are directed by Ann Fredrickson.
