Course Description

Hermann Sasse (1895-1976) was perhaps the most important confessional Lutheran theologian of the 20th century. This course will engage his writings on pastoral issues such as closed communion, the office of the ministry, liturgy, church fellowship and women’s ordination.

Prof. Pless is assistant professor of Pastoral Ministry and Missions at Concordia Theological Seminary (CTSFW), Fort Wayne, Indiana, where he also serves as director of Field Education. Prior to joining the faculty, he served for 17 years as campus pastor at University Lutheran Chapel at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis.
