Cranach Institute Director, Dr. Veith, recognized for writing achievements
FORT WAYNE, Ind. (CTS) — Dr. Gene Edward Veith, Director of the Cranach Institute located at Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne, Ind., has been listed as a finalist for a 2004 Gold Medallion Book Award. The awards are presented annually by the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association (ECPA). Finalists are chosen in many categories from devotional books to autobiographies to Christian living. There are five finalists for each award category. Dr. Veith’s work, Loving God with All Your Mind, has been nominated in the category of Christianity and Society.
The book was written to bolster Christians as they face challenges to their faith as they live and work in a secular society. Loving God with All Your Mind invites readers to learn how to deal with such contemporary issues as evolution, relativism, and truth and morality from a wholly Christian perspective in a postmodern world. “It is a great honor to be a finalist,” said Dr. Veith. “This recognition shows how a Lutheran Two Kingdoms approach can resonate with non-Lutherans when it comes to issues of education and the life of the mind.” The award will be presented at the 27th Annual Gold Medallion Book Award banquet on June 26, 2004, in Atlanta, Ga. Dr. Veith was also honored with a 2004 Higher Goals Award from the Evangelical Press Association. His article “American Christmas,” which he wrote for the Lutheran Witness, was awarded a second place honor for Best General Article.
The Cranach Institute began its partnership with Concordia Theological Seminary in March of this year. It is the focus of the Institute and the seminary to work together to serve the needs of Christians as they serve Christ in this world. The Institute will be planning several events to take place at CTS in the 2004/2005 academic year. These events will allow Christians to gather to discuss such issues as vocation, art, and education from a biblical perspective.
