August Crull (1845-1923) edited and compiled the first edition of the Evangelical Lutheran Hymn-Book (1889), thus playing a critical role in shaping the hymnic tradition of The Lutheran Church--Missouri Synod as it transitioned from German to English. This study tells the story of Crull's pioneering labor in the formation of this seminal hymnal and documents the twenty-year journey to its final edition in 1912, which became the first, official English-language hymnal of the Lutheran Church--Missouri Synod.
The Rev. Dr. Jon D. Vieker is senior assistant to Rev. Dr. Matthew C. Harrison, president of The Lutheran Church--Missouri Synod. Prior to joining the president's staff in September 2010, Vieker served as assistant director for the LCMS Commission on Worship, a position he began in November 1998. In that position, he was involved with all aspects of research, development, editing and production of Lutheran Service Book and its core companion volumes.
