American Lutheranism represents a confluence of ecclesiastical and national streams flowing from the headwaters of Luther’s Germany. Since the time of early Dutch settlers along the Delaware River and German immigrants to William Penn’s Pennsylvania, the church has formed its identity from disparate branches of Lutheran tradition. Henry Eyster Jacobs explores these tributaries and documents their unique contributions to Lutheranism in the United States.
