Writings in the Field of American Lutheranism: 1994

Compiled by Dr. James Albers, Mr. John N. Dickmeyer and Rev. Robert E. Smith

Below is our latest bibliography of items which tell the story of God's presence among his Lutheran children in America. This year's bibliography continues the trend of greater use of electronic resources in the gathering of citations. With the advent of Project Wittenberg, the "home page" of the ELCA and the presence of Concordia Historical Institute, we hope to actually cite resources for the study of American Lutheranism in next year's installment.

Our thanks once again goes out to everyone who helped to make this year's bibliography possible. We are grateful for your support.
