Martin Luther used that question repeatedly in his writings, specifically, his Small Catechism with Explanation. So it seemes entirely appropriate to ask that question of the designs and details found in the pieces of the Bethlehem Suite.
These pages will show design details and discuss the Theological implications that are revealed in the four pieces.
Click on each piece for explanations.
I would like to thank Pastor Jim Richter of Bethlehem Lutheran Church for giving me the opportunity to build these pieces; and my thanks also to my dear friend and outstanding architect Larry Frank who helped me refine my designs and gave me further inspiration for these pieces.
