Walther and Missions – what do you know about this topic? Do you want to learn more? The Summer 2022 Concordia Historical Institute Quarterly (Volume 95, no.2) contains one homily and three lectures about C.F.W. Walther and missions, which were presented at the 2022 Walther Roundtable.
The Rev. Dr. Thomas Manteufel, a CHI Distinguished Service awardee and professor emeritus at Concordia Seminary, provides us with the chapel sermon he offered at Concordia Seminary on the day of the Walther Roundtable. He also provided the first lecture, “An Overview of C.F.W. Walther on Mission.” The next lecture was by the Rev. Dr. Benjamin Haupt, associate professor at Concordia Seminary, entitled, “A Review of Herman Koppelmann’s Essay ‘Walther and Missions.'” The final lecture was presented by the Rev. Dr. Frederic Baue, entitled, “Walther at Gravelton – How the German Lutheran Synod Learned to Speak English.”
Four book reviews finish out this issue of the CHIQ. Ken Schurb reviews Jack D. Kilcrease’s book, “The Doctrine of Atonement: From Luther to Forde”, John T. Pless reviews Robert Benne’s, “Thanks by to God! Memories of a Practical Theologian”, Deborah Rockrohr reviews Jenny Wiley Legath’s book, “Sanctified Sisters: A History of Protestant Deaconesses”, and Ken Schurb reviews Fabian F. Grassl’s “In the Face of Death: Thielicke – Theologian, Preacher, Boundary Rider.”
