CE: Hermann Sasse

We see here a class of stalwart learners from the Continuing Education course at St. Jakobi Lutheran in Shawano, Wisconsin, held last week. Dr. Pless taught on the topic of “Hermann Sasse as Pastoral Theologian.”

Hermann Sasse was a Lutheran pastor and author, one of the foremost confessional Lutheran theologians of the 20th century. Born in 1895 in Germany, Sasse saw both the rise and fall of the Nationalist Socialist Party (more commonly known as the Nazi Party), remaining a vocal critic of Hitler. He moved to Australia in 1949, and died in 1976. You can find quite a number of resources written by him over the course of his lifetime.
