Welcome to the site dedicated to making available the talks, lectures, and papers of John W. Kleinig, Lutheran pastor and teacher.

This site is being developed by some of Dr Kleinig's former students who have been given his permission to proceed. We have lots of material that we are working to make available in the future. As such, the whole site is a work in progress and we hope to upload more material in the future.

Please send us an email at johnkleinigresources at gmail dot com to be kept in the loop as the project develops, or for any other feedback. Please also use this email address if you wish to make a donation towards to the equipment purchased to record lectures.

All lectures remain the property of Australian Lutheran College and are made available here with permission.

July 2017 Update

Dr Kleinig has described his new Hebrews commentary (CPH, 2017) as the most demanding and enjoyable thing he has ever written, and the culmination of a lifetime of scholarship and pastoral activity. "I can truly say that none of my scholarly projects has given me such great intellectual enjoyment and spiritual nourishment as this undertaking."

If you happen to be in Adelaide, Australia, there will be a book launch on Friday 11 August, 3.30pm at Australian Lutheran College. You're welcome to come along.

Dr. Kleinig has also been writing another book for CPH on the theology of the body. We'll keep you posted on its progress.
