The Summer 2015 issue of the Concordia Historical Institute Quarterly (Vol. 88, no.2) continues the commemoration of the 175th anniversary of Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, Missouri, as well as the continued consideration of the various tools to carry out historical research.
Russell P. Baldner wraps up his article from the previous issue, “Institution, Structure, and Place: Revisiting the Historiographic Circumstances of the Saxon Lutheran Lehranstalt – Log Cabin College”; Warren R. Schmidt shows us the importance of genealogical research in part one of his article, “The Long Reach of the Log Cabin College: A Study of the Inaugural 1839-1840 Class of the Log Cabin College in Dresden, Missouri” and Thomas Manteufel provides a look at “Seminary Life in Walther’s Day: A Collection of First-hand Accounts”. The issue concludes with three book reviews: Marianna Forde’s “Gerhard O. Forde: A Life”, Randy Boyagoda’s “Richard John Neuhaus: A Life in the Public Square”, and Tim Townsend’s “Mission at Nuremberg”.
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.
