Writings in the Field of American Lutheranism: 1999

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

This is the latest installment of the bibliography of items related to the history of Lutheranism in America. It covers items published in the calendar year 1999. (Note: Items from prior years that were missed in previous indexes have been added to those indexes in this online version.) Previous year’s bibliographies are also available online. See the list to the left for links.

As in previous years, we appeal to readers for help in compiling next year’s index. Although the tools of modern library research are excellent, they are not nor are they likely to become exhaustive. Please send us citations of your own work as well as those of your colleagues. We are especially interested in local, private and unindexed theses and dissertations. Send relevant citations to:
