New Quiz / Issues Etc Promotion

Two items of note:

Book of Concord Quiz Updated!

We have published a new quiz on the site! I know you have been waiting for it since we opened; but we finally came through! Thanks to Pastor Stephen Schumacher of Bethany Lutheran Church in Naperville IL for writing some questions and answers! This one is a bit more theological, so for those who complained that our previous quiz was too basic (and unclear), here’s hoping you like the new one!

If you don’t like the questions this time, feel free to submit your own .. we ask at the bottom of each quiz for you to submit questions/answers of your own! What would be needed is the question, the answers, and a paragraph explaining why the answer is correct.

Issues, Etc!

In our efforts to help promote new media, we’d like to make sure you are aware of the notices that Issues Etc makes available for insertion into bulletins. If you didn’t see the below in your bulletin this past Sunday, please talk to your pastor, church secretary, or whomever is responsible and get them to start posting these!

DEFENDING THE FAITH, TEACHING THE TRUTH…If you’re a fan of talk radio, take a listen to Issues, Etc. Topics include: Objective vs. Subjective Christianity, Christians & Economic Crisis, Judgment Day, The Terrorist Attacks in India and more. Issues, Etc. is hosted by LCMS Pastor Todd Wilken and produced by Lutheran Public Radio. Listen to what you want when you want at

About Norm Fisher

Norm was raised in the UCC in Connecticut, and like many fell away from the church after high school. With this background he saw it primarily as a service organization. On the miracle of his first child he came back to the church. On moving to Texas a few years later he found a home in Lutheranism when he was invited to a confessional church a half-hour away by our new neighbors.

He is one of those people who found a like mind in computers while in Middle School and has been programming ever since. He's responsible for many websites, including the Book of Concord,, and several other sites.

He has served the church in various positions, including financial secretary, sunday school teacher, elder, PTF board member, and choir member.

Norm has been involved behind the scenes in many of the "go-to" websites for Lutherans going back many years.


New Quiz / Issues Etc Promotion — 3 Comments

  1. Well looks like we made the quiz too easy! So far three people have taken it; two got 6 of 7 questions right, and the third got 5 of the 7 questions right!

    Good luck as more people take it! I may code a “results” page if we get enough takers!

  2. Wow — 24 “people” have now taken it .. low score so far is 2. Thou, the person who got that appears to have come back and gotten a 6 the second time they took it! Feel free to comment here or on the quiz itself.

  3. Re: Issues Etc promo paragraph for bulletins. My pastor (and I know you know him, Todd), has flat out refused requests to have it inserted in our bulletin and has said that if anyone has a problem with it, they should discuss it directly with him. Sounds like Pres. K has a little too much influence in our congregation. This is MOST disappointing not to mention unnecessary since we promote anything and everything that is happening outside Lutheran congregations whether it be sound teaching or not. Things are getting worse and worse.
