More Description

"John Tietjen's close account of the conflict within a Christian body moves withthe skill, the drama, and the characterization of a novel. But there is no shredof fiction here. The author stood at the center of the conflict. His observationsof the events (both broadly public and closeted in private) that altered the face-politicof Lutheranism in this country are absolutely accurate. Here is the selfishexpression of faith, as well as the dangers of the right hand of power withinchurches. Here, too, is the sweetness of human community-even while individualpeople of faith must stand in their decisions ultimately alone. Tietjen haswritten a memoriam and a history and a jubilate and a confession. Excellent "Walter Wangerin Jr."John Tietjen tells the unpleasant story of crisis and conflict in the church. It is a storythat needs to be told, and he tells it in a way that people will find both gripping anduplifting. This is his personal account, done with the precision and documentationof a professional historian, but his writing also produces a narration of many keyevents and a strikingly human portrayal of the people on both sides of the conflict.In John Tietjen's hands, this story of conflict and crisis brings us back to the Godwho produces order out of chaos and blessing out of the suffering of God's people."Jeanette H. BauermeisterJohn H. Tietjen, formerly president of ConcordiaSeminary, St. Louis, and Christ Seminary-Seminex, Saint Louis and Chicago, was pastor of Trinity LutheranChurch, Fort Worth, Texas.
