Writings in the Field of American Lutheranism: 1996

Compiled by Dr. James W. Albers, Mr. John N. Dickmeyer and the Rev. Robert E. Smith

This is latest installment of the bibliography of items related to the history of Lutheranism in America. It covers items published in the calendar year 1996 and items from prior years which were missed in previous indexes. The 1996 and previous year's bibliographies are also available on the LHC World Wide Web Home Page: http://www.chi.lcms.org/lhc/.

In this year's index, we had hoped to provide entries citing documents and hymn collections present on the World Wide Web. We still hope to provide this information as a regular column in this newsletter, so look for those in subsequent issues, along with other "cyberspace" news notes.

As in previous years, we once again appeal to LHC members for help in compiling next year's index. Although the tools of modern library research are excellent, they are not nor are they likely to become exhaustive. Please send us citations of your own work as well as those of your colleagues. We are especially interested in local, private and unindexed theses of note.
