The latest and best biography of a father of confessional Lutheranism in North America.
 
Loehe, who never visited the United States, sent missionaries, founded seminaries, established deaconess training, studied doctrine and liturgy, and fought with church officials. Geiger sets forth Loehe's life, and the divided opinions about him, in a compelling and authoritative narrative.  
 
This first, full length biography of a key player in Lutheran history is accessible to lay audiences and appreciated by scholars.
Prof. John T. Pless MDiv
Assistant Professor of Pastoral Ministry & Missions
Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne
Co-President of the International Loehe Society
 
Those looking for a model for pastoral ministry with integrity do well to emulate Loehe. Few pastors have mobilized their congregations for mission as he.
Prof. Mark Mattes, PhD
Professor of Religion and Philosophy
Grand View University
Des Moines, Iowa
 
Through a splendid use of original source material the reader is immersed in the challenges and affairs confronting Loehe in his time.

We have so much to learn from this visionary and yet practical pastor.

Erika Geiger lived in Neuendettelsau, Germany (1953-55) where Loehe and his work made an enduring impression on her. In 1956 she served as a deaconess in a hospital of the Neuendettelsau Deaconess Institute. She later served as an associate professor in Korntal bei Stuttgart, at the Friedrich-Oberlin-Fachoberschule and at the Fachhochschule for Religionspadagogik, Munich.
 
Translator Dr. Wolf Knappe (1926– ) comes from a family of German pastors. In 1951 St. Peter’s Lutheran Church called him to serve in Wine Hill, IL. He has also served as a guest lecturer and as a translator for Luther Digest.
