The Spring 2016 issue of the Concordia Historical Institute Quarterly (Vol. 89, no.1), is hot off the press!
The Rev. Dr. Jack D. Ferguson, a frequent contributor, provides us with his article, “‘Mid Tumult of Her War: The Doctrine of the Church and the Office of the Holy Ministry Following the 1841 Altenburg Debate”; the Rev. William R. Wangelin provides us with some of the consequences from the Altenburg Debate with his “Letters from Lebanon: Carl Ludwig Geyer in the Wisconsin Wilderness”; current seminary student and vicar Joel Heckmann, a decendent of the first graduate of the Log Cabin College, provides us with “Pastor J.A.F.W. Mueller: a Faithful Shepherd of Souls”; and the Rev. Todd D. Zittlow, archivist at CHI, provides us with his updated list of “Lutheran History in North America: A Bibliography of Works Published in 2015”.
The issue concludes with three book reviews: Daniel Zager’s review of two books, James W. Freese’s Paul O. Manz: The Enduring Legacy of the Hymn Festival and David W. Rogner’s Dawnlight Breaks: The Hymn Texts and Translations of F. Smauel Janzow and in conclusion the Rev. Dr. Thomas Manteufel’s review of John T. Pless’ Handling the Word of Truth: Law and Gospel in the Church Today.
