CHI Exhibit Pressed into Service by the Word of God to Close

Concordia Historical Institute’s Museum Exhibit, “Pressed into Service by the Word of God” set to close Saturday, November 10, 2018.

Concordia Historical Institute, located on the campus of Concordia Seminary in Clayton, Missouri, announces that the current museum exhibit, “Pressed into Service by the Word of God” will close on Saturday, November 10, 2018. This exhibit of rare books and coins documenting the 500-year history of the Reformation illustrates the role of the printing press and the coin press as witnesses to the truths of the Word of God and also focuses on the men and women who were pressed into service for the sake of Christ and the Gospel.

The books, coins and medals, some from the 16th and 17th centuries, are from Concordia Historical Institute’s Rare Book Collection and Reformation Coin and Medal Collection and are rarely on display. The exhibit is suitable for adults and youth, especially students taking classes for First Communion or Confirmation. It is wheelchair accessible. If you are unable to visit the exhibit before it closes in November, CHI has an illustrated, 50 page exhibit catalog we can send to you for $8.00 plus $3.00 postage.
