Just arrived! The Spring 2018 issue of the Concordia Historical Institute Quarterly (Vol. 91, no.1) has been received from the printer and has been delivered to our mail vendor.
The Spring 2018 issue provides some historical perspectives on Lutherans and the civil rights struggle in Selma. It accomplishes this through articles by Kathryn M. Galchutt on “Ulysses Blackmon and James Gildersleeve: Lutheran Teachers Who Made a Difference in Selma’s Civil Rights Campaign”, Joseph W. Ellwanger on “The Relevance of Selma 1965 for the 21st Century”, and finally, from a new contributor, Christian J. Einertson on “Sorrow and Gladness: Norwegian Studies at Concordia College”. CHI’s archivist, Todd D. Zittlow, presents his annual bibliography, “Lutheran History in North America: A Bibliography of Works Published in 2017”. Four book reviews are contained in this issue: Gene Edward Veith reviews Kenneth L. Woodward’s “Getting Religion: Faith, Culture, and Politics from the Age of Eisenhower to the Era of Obama”, Benjamin Nickodemus reviews two items, “Engaging Bonhoeffer: The Impact and Influence of Bonhoeffer’s Life and Thought” and Christiane Tietz’s “Theologian of Resistance: The Life and Thought of Dietrich Bonhoeffer”, and the final review by David O. Berger on “Luther! 95 Treasures – 95 People”.
