Soli Deo Gloria


Many people have helped contribute to this project to whom we owe many thanks: Rev. George Carstensen and Rev. Matthew Kobs, Mr. Dale Ward, Ms. Shannon Wiseman for their work on the videos—both photographing them and editing them; and Dr. Paul Raabe and Mrs. Melanie Appelbaum for proofreading the text. Rev. George Carstensen for his layout and design of the Bible Study as well as the delivery system for downloading;

We also express our gratitude to the congregations of Salem Lutheran Church in Afton, MO, Our Savior in Carbondale, Ill, and Webster Gardens Lutheran Church in St. Louis for field testing earlier versions of this Bible study and for their helpful feedback.

Finally, a special thanks goes to the Lutheran Community Foundation for its generous grant to the Center for the Care of Creation at Concordia Seminary. Without their support, this project would not have been possible.
