Item description for A Seminary in Crisis: The Inside Story of the Preus Fact Finding Committee by Paul A. Zimmerman...

This book recounts events in The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (LCMS) leading up to the 1974 walkout at Concordia Seminary, Saint Louis. Beginning with the 1947 division over church fellowship, the author sheds light on the numerous small controversies that culminated in charges against the faculty for teaching contrary to the LCMS position on biblical authority. Zimmerman shares his personal account of the Fact Finding Committee interviews, coupled with pertinent passages from convention documents, bylaws, and findings of the committee. This book includes the full report of the Fact Finding Committee, never before made public, and the "Blue Book," the complete 1972 report of the synodical president. Paul Zimmerman, retired college president and pastor, has served in The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod for more than 50 years. He is one of two living members of the Fact Finding Committee appointed by LCMS President J. A. O. Preus to investigate charges of false doctrine being taught at Concordia Seminary.

Reviews - What do customers think about A Seminary in Crisis: The Inside Story of the Preus Fact Finding Committee?

A Unique, Essential History of A Defining Moment in American Lutheranism  Apr 12, 2008
This book is truly one-of-a-kind, offering primary source documentation of a very important controversy in American Lutheranism: the Seminex crisis in The Lutheran Church--Missouri Synod.

Professors at Concordia Seminary, the world's largest seminary at the time, had over several decades moved more and more into embracing the latest forms of Biblical interpretation that were popular in liberal Christianity. While attempting to cover-up or otherwise explain away their embrace of certain philosophies and methods of studying the Bible that led them to cast doubt on historical accuracy of the Scriptures, their work was finally thoroughly investigated by a fact-finding committee appointed by the church's president.

This book contains the story of that fact-finding committee's work by it chairman: Dr. Paul Zimmerman. And it reproduces the actual transcripts of their interviews with the faculty members, offering proof of the trends and teachings that they were attempting to deny or explain away.
