Now Available! Walther’s Works: Church Fellowship

churchfellowshpThe latest volume in Concordia Publishing House’s Walther’s Works collection, Church Fellowship, is now available.

From 1857 to 1884, C.F.W. Walther wrote numerous articles and speeches dealing with Lutheran identity and unity in doctrine and practice on the basis of Holy Scripture and the Lutheran Confessions. For the first time, these previously scattered, inaccessible, and forgotten writings are being brought together in one volume.

This volume helps clarify not only what Lutheran identity was in the nineteenth century, but also what it means to confess the Christian faith in the twenty-first century, in harmony with the Church of all ages.

About the Author

Carl Ferdinand Wilhelm Walther (October 25, 1811–May 7, 1887) immigrated to the United States of America from Saxony (a German territory) in 1839. With others, he formed The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod in 1847 and became its first president, as well as a professor and president of Concordia Seminary (now in St. Louis). He is remembered as “the American Luther” due to his defense of distinctively Lutheran doctrine and practice in the midst of a culture that opposed these.
