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.

More of his work can be found at


Get ready! On April 14th starting at 4PM — Issues, Etc. will hold 24 hours of live Bible studies! — 14 Comments

  1. I am already giddy with excitement. I’m assuming all 24 hours will be podcasted, but just in case, I’ll be prepared with a LOT of coffee to stay awake. No Chelada, though.

  2. Just the kind of no-synodocrats-allowed, breathtakingly innocent and hungering/thirsting for our Lord, Easter-morning awe-inspiring, hard-core convict-me-with-Law and revive-me-with-Gospel, this-one’s-for-the-steadfast, all-Bible-all-the-time, turn-that-confessional-amplifier-to-eleven reclaim our Grandfathers’ Church from the clutches of the Sleeping Dwarfs in the Purple Palace kind of declaration of steadfast defiance (in love) as a confirmation of the health and well-being of the growing movement toward traditional, historical, orthodox, Confessional Lutheranism in America that we need! Just the fact that Issues, Etc. would dare to do something like this is bracing and inspiring. I can’t wait!

  3. It’s audacious! It’s not the safe thing to do! It’s not giving away cars and big TVs at Easter worship services. It’s not calculated to engage meaningfully with a target demographic group! It’s Law and Gospel, live and direct and real.

    This is big. Because its “all in.” It’s “all access.” It’s without the usual reservation and deliberate dignity one might associate with old school Confessional Lutherans. This is the kind of fresh thinking that you won’t get from a church growth consultant. Why? Because it’s not calculated. It’s honest. It’s real. It’s audacious. It’s authentic. It’s not safe. It’s a vigil.

    OK, I’ll try to calm down now.

  4. I’m willing to wager they go the entire 24 hours without uttering the word “missional.”

    All right, now I’m done.

  5. Amazing Idea! I cannot wait. I’m hoping too for the downloadable podcasts.
    Easier to share that way.

  6. Includes:

    1. Genesis – Dr. David Adams
    2. Leviticus – Dr. John Kleinig
    3. Song of Songs – Dr. Andrew Steinmann
    4. Mark – Dr. Peter Scaer
    5. Romans – Rev. Bill Cwirla
    6. Revelation – Dr. Louis Brighton
    7. 1 Corinthians – Dr. Greg Lockwood
    8. Psalms – Dr. Tim Saleska
    9. Ephesians – Dr. Thomas Winger

    That’s eighteen hours. Anyone care to guess what three other books and guests?

  7. It would be helpful to specify where this 24 broadcast will be available. Internet only? I don’t see any directions for those who might not know…

  8. @John #7
    My uneducated guess:
    10. Luke – Dr. Authur Just
    11. Ezekiel – Dr. Horace Hummel (daylight hours only)
    12. Special Treat – Hebrews – Dr. John Kleinig (this will definetly wake everyone)

  9. Just a question:

    So the 24 hrs. continuous Bible study is broken up into 2 hr. segments on a different book of Scripture?

  10. Please post a time-slot for each of the “studies,” so that I may select those of most interest. At my age, it would be totally useless to attempt intelligent study for 24 hours. I’d have to get a nap somewhere! 😉

  11. Wow!
    Now I have to change my workout schedule from 1hr to a 2hr workout. My aged muscles are already screaming! That’s one way to loose weight. 🙂
