The Winter 2014 issue of the Concordia Historical Institute Quarterly (Vol. 87, No. 4) highlights the 1917 celebration of the quadricentennial of the Reformation in the Lutheran church bodies of America. There were several mergers of Lutheran synods both proposed and accomplished, as well as calls for joint celebrations. And it took place in the context of the Great War encompassing Europe.
Other articles in this issue include William Wangelin on “The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly: [L. F. E.] Krause’s Moment in Macomb”; a sermon by C. F. W. Walther from 1842, “The Holy Delight and Duty of All Christians of Leading Souls to Christ” and John Vieker’s address to the CHI Awards Banquet, “Singing Sermons.”
