Review of some essays on Sasse

This volume is a fine tribute to Hermann Otto Sasse, born in Sonnenwalde on 17th July 1895. A colorful addition complementing the series “Oberurseler Hefte”, masterfully edited by prolific Werner Klän:  bilingual, international, scholarly, sometimes with literary flair and whiffs of genius, surprising detail, mostly with clear Lutheran bias. Just as you´d expect from this panel of twelve academics from three continents reflecting Sasse´s theological legacy, which continues to flourish. The writers go far to trace his ecumenical impact in the doctrinal disciplines of Biblical studies, Church History, Systematics and Liturgics. Want to read more? Here´s a link to my review.
