Brenner, John M.
MetadataShow full item record
Professor Brenner provides a look at the development of confessionalism in the Wisconsin Synod and the ebb and flow of Wisconsin’s relationship with the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod and C.F.W. Walther in particular. He makes it clear that while the WELS can say that it owes a debt to Walther for his influence in helping this church body become a truly confessional church, it must also give much of the credit to the early leaders of this synod, including, but not limited to, Adolf Hoenecke.
