Kurt K. Hendel is the Bernard, Fischer, Westberg Distinguished Ministry Professor of Reformation History at the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago. Before joining the LSTC faculty in 1983, Hendel taught at Concordia Seminary and Christ Seminary-Seminex in St. Louis, Missouri. His teaching, research, and writing have focused on the Reformation, Martin Luther, and Johannes Bugenhagen.
In this landmark set, an extensive collection of writings from Johannes Bugenhagen, Luther's pastor, friend, and colleague in reform, are presented for the first time in English. The vast majority of these works have only been available in their original, sixteenth-century editions.
