Others who have taken the course at First Lutheran:
“The Crossways course deepened our faith and drew us closer to Christ. We heard a number of times that in order to truly understand the New Testament you need to understand the Old Testament and now we can say that with certainty ourselves. It made us realize that there is so much more that we need to/can learn about the Bible. Harry Wendt is a good resource, but there were other Biblical scholars shown to us on dvds and Pastor Mike himself that helped us understand the material.” Mary Lynn and Jon Langsdorf
