Arthur Carl Piepkorn: Chaplain to the Greatest Generation
including his classic essay “What Chance Has the Chaplaincy?”
Well known as an authority on the Lutheran Confessions and ecumenism, Arthur Carl Piepkorn also had a distinguished career as a chaplain in the U.S. Army. In WW II he was pastor to soldiers of the greatest generation, serving with humility and grace while advancing to the highest echelons in the European Theater. A new ALPB book tells his story as based on Army records and letters to Miriam, his wife. His evangelical catholic posture was just as evident in uniform as elsewhere. Included in the book is Piepkorn’s never before published incisive understanding of the armed forces chaplaincy as an institution both of church and state.
This 2nd edition of The Church: Selected Writings of Arthur Carl Piepkorn has been updated by the editors and retains the Afterword by Richard John Neuhaus. It reappeared as the first of several new planned Piepkorn volumes. This first volume is available from the ALPB.
