The Spring 2017 issue of the Concordia Historical Institute Quarterly (Vol. 90, no.1) continues its offering of outstanding articles on American Lutheran history!
While this issue contains only one major article, it provides a glimpse of how God has used laymen to trumpet Christ’s redeeming work in the life of the Lutheran Church. Presented in this issue is: “In Action for God and Church: The First Thirty Years of the International Lutheran Laymen’s League” by Gerald Perschbacher.
Three book reviews are again provided: a review by Rolf D. Preus of Odd S. Lovoll’s “Across the Deep Blue Sea: The Saga of Early Norwegian Immigrants from Norway to America Through the Canadian Gateway”; Joel Biermann reviews Brian W. Thomas’ “Wittenberg vs. Geneva: A Biblical Bout in Seven Rounds on the Doctrines that Divide” and finally, Mark A. Loest reviews Joshua C. Miller’s “Hanging by a Promise: The Hidden God in the Theology of Oswald Bayer”.
The Quarterly is sent to all members of the Institute. It is available as a subscription only without membership for $40.00 per year. Single copies are $10.00 for issues published during the past three years and $4.00 for earlier issues. Shipping and handling are extra for back issues.
