Ringside Preachers

Jan 31, 2023

At the end of the Lord's Prayer, you hear the promise of the resurrection rumbling through the whole thing. Finally, the door of the mighty fortress is going to open and the Prince of Peace will step forward! The Ringside Preachers join John T. Pless at Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne to remember and honor the great theologian Jim Nestingen.



  1. God does not leave you without a preacher!
  2. Deliver us from Every Evil, even death
  3. Praying the Lord’s Prayer as Luther did
  4. Legacy of Handing over the Goods
  5. Reflections on the life and theology of Jim Nestingen
  6. Pietism and Antinomianism
  7. God is doing something through the preached Word
