All training at the seminary is carried out in the light of the gospel under the full authority of the Holy Scriptures as the inspired and inerrant Word of God. All teaching is carried out in conscious harmony with the Lutheran Confessions as the correct understanding of the Bible’s message. To accomplish these goals the seminary includes courses on a variety of biblical and theological subjects.
The seminary uses the SBL Handbook of Style, Second Edition, for all papers and publications. Copies may be purchased from SBL or on Amazon. The SBL Student Supplement gives instructions for writing academic papers according using SBL style. The seminary style guide is a guide for student papers at the seminary.
