Concordia Historical Institute, Pressemitteilung vom 23.07.2021

The Concordia Historical Institute Awards Committee and the Concordia Historical Institute’s Board of Governors is excited to announce the recipients for this year’s Award of Commendation for publications released in 2020. After reviewing hundreds of nominees for works making significant contributions in the field of Lutheran archives and history in North America, the committee selected nine published works from around the world. The awards will be officially given at the 47th annual awards banquet scheduled for November 11th on the campus of Concordia Seminary in Saint Louis.
Included in this year’s awards is the Award of Commendation for the article »Truth and Tyranny. Hermann Sasse’s 1936 Missive to Ludwig Fürbringer« by Maurice Schild in the publication Der Theologe Hermann Sasse (1895−1976): Einblicke in seine internationale Wirkung als Exeget, Kirchenhistoriker, Systematiker und Ökumeniker, edited by Werner Klän and published by Edition Ruprecht of Göttingen, Germany. Dr. Schild is Lecturer for Historical Theology Emeritus at Australian Lutheran College in North Adelaide in Australia.
The CHI awards committee designated this work as worthy of commendation, writing that this review and analysis of Sasse’s 1936 letter to Concordia Seminary president Ludwig Feuerbringer describing the rise of the Nazi Party and its accompanying restrictions on the church gives evidence of the grave concern Lutheran church leaders had for the rising tyranny of the National Socialist German Workers’ Party
The awards committee also gave an Honorable Mention to the entire publication Der Theologe Hermann Sasse (1895−1976) for its contribution to the study of Lutheranism in North America. The book commemorates the 125th anniversary of Hermann Sasse’s birthday (July 17, 1895), and is available through online booksellers as well as the bookstore of Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
Herman Sasse was a German professor of theology at Erlangen University who had extensive influence internationally through his widely distributed and published Letters to Pastors and other writings. Sasse had direct personal influence with LCMS leaders, especially President John Behnken and Concordia Seminary President Ludwig Fuerbringer.
