Overview Lutheran Hymnals in America Carl F. Schalk recounts the story of the development and use of the hymnals that have shaped the faith of Lutherans in North America since 1786. The story of these hymnals encompasses the transplanting of the hymnic heritage of the emigrants' homelands to America, the problems presented by accommodation to the American situation, the gradual proliferation of hymnals as the Lutheran church spread throughout the expanding nation, and the movement toward consensus and consolidation in the late twentieth century.
Publishers Description The worship leader and worshiper have an informative, readable, and concise resource for understanding the history and purpose of Lutheran hymnody in North America. Schalk writes from his unique position as worshiper, scholar and musician.
