  • In this program, Dennis Wholey has a conversation about Lutheranism with the Reverend David Eberhard of Historic Trinity Lutheran Church, in Detroit, Michigan. Topics of discussion include Martin Luther, his 95 theses, and the Reformation; the doctrine of justification and other core beliefs; the Church's two sacraments; The Book of Concord; how Historic Trinity Lutheran Church stays relevant to both its congregants and the city of Detroit; and concerns over the hectic pace and stress of modern life. The program also goes inside Historic Trinity to illustrate aspects of a typical liturgy-oriented Lutheran worship service.
