As professor, pastor, and president, Christ has always been at the center of Dean Orrin Wenthe’s confession and practice. His clarity of thought and charity of heart have encouraged and inspired his parishioners, colleagues, and, especially, students entering the pastoral ministry in coming to a deeper understanding of their Lord Christ.

Written in honor of Dr. Wenthe’s forty years of service to Concordia Theological Seminary, the essays in this Festschrift illuminate the central accents of his teaching as a biblical theologian about the sacramentality of God’s good creation and how God uses the “stuff” of this world to deliver to us promises that are concrete, real, and even infinite. They consider how through the viva vox Jesu God restores his creation, how, in Christ, we have “real life” in a “real world” constituted by a “real presence.”

“Real and abundant life now and forever is God’s free gift in Christ. Death is defeated. As Christians walk through a corrupt and dying world, they are called to embody real life, showing Christ to all who are dying. . . By the gift of His Son’s life, every man and woman can be restored to real and abundant life in the blessed and holy Trinity, now and forever.”
—Dr. Dean Wenthe

Contributors include Rev. Dr. Matthew C. Harrison, Dr. John W. Kleinig, Dr. Christopher Mitchell, Dr. Scott R. Murray, Rev. John T. Pless, Dr. Peter Scaer, Dr. David P. Scaer, and Dr. William C. Weinrich.
