Lutheran Quarterly Creates Endowment Fund In Memory of Emeritus Professor

Gerhard O. Forde

An endowment fund supporting evangelical theology has been created by Lutheran Quarterly in memory of Gerhard O. Forde, a professor emeritus of Luther Seminary.  The editors and officers of Lutheran Quarterly, to which Forde was a frequent contributor, put up personal donations as initial gifts.

"We have committed ourselves to furthering the Forde legacy of proclaiming the gospel through evangelical theology and careful historical scholarship," Paul Rorem, editor of Lutheran Quarterly and Lutheran Quarterly Books, said in a press release.

The Forde Fund will be applied to publication projects that promote radical Lutheranism, including Forde's own essays found in "The Preached God: Proclamation in Word and Sacrament."
