Subject to None, Servant of All

Essays in Christian Scholarship in Honor of Kurt Karl Hendel

Peter Vethanayagamony
& Kenneth Sawyer, editors

Kurt Hendel is a respected scholar of the broad Reformation traditions, with special focus on the life and thought of Martin Luther and the circle of reformers who joined in that mighty work. In addition to his careful exposition of Luther, the Lutheran confessions and their reception, and the interaction of Lutheran and other Reformation traditions, Hendel has produced the authoritative English language edition of selected writings of Lutherís colleague and pastor, Johannes Bugenhagen (1485-1558). Hendelís service of over forty years of inspiring and effective teaching began in St. Louis at Concordia Seminary, continued with Christ SeminaryĖSeminex, and for over thirty years flourished at the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago, where he was honored as the first to hold the Bernard, Fischer, Westberg Distinguished Professorship of Reformation History. Kurtís retirement provides an opportunity to gather this collection of essays in honor of a true pastor, scholar, friend, professor, father and grandfather, trusted mentor, and valued colleague.

The title of this volume is taken from Lutherís Von der Freiheit eines Christenmenschen (1520), in which Luther summarizes the paradox of Christian freedom, noting a Christian is free and ďsubject to none,Ē but that a Christian is also the most dutiful servant, ďsubject to all.Ē These essays gather tributes and explorations by his students, colleagues, and associates. Hendelís influence is wide ranging. This collection of papers is dedicated to Kurt in deep appreciation of his service to all of Godís dear people.

This collection includes personal tributes by Kurtís students, essays from pastor/scholars, and a series of essays engaging the broad Christian tradition by colleagues including James Scherer, David Daniels III, Mark Swanson, Peter Vethanayagamony, Vitor Westhelle, Ralph Klein, Mark Bangert, and Ken Sawyer. The volume concludes with a bibliography of Hendelís writings, and Hendelís excellent essay on Lutherís theology of the cross.
