With this third volume of Hermann Sasse’s Letters to Lutheran Pastors, an effort of nearly a quarter century comes to a close. There is, to be sure, much more Sasse to translate and publish, and others have and are taking up the challenge. . . . With two volumes of The Lonely Way and with three volumes of Letters to Lutheran Pastors, we have now put into print some 2,500 pages of Sasse.
Thus writes editor and translator the Rev. Dr. Matthew C. Harrison (president of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod) in the preface to volume 3 of Letters to Lutheran Pastors. The complete 3-volume collection gathers together more than 60 circular letters that Sasse wrote and distributed as a means to encourage and call to account the pastors of his beloved Lutheran Church around the world.
