Elijah and Elisha, Walther and Pieper

As Elisha followed Elijah the prophet with a "double portion" of Elijah's spirit (2 Kings 2:9), so Franz Pieper followed C.F.W. Walther, the first leader of the Missouri Synod.  O how the spirit of Walther's true teaching followed beautifully with Dr. Pieper!  O how I pray that God would raise up teachers like Walther and Pieper today!  But we still have their writings.  Many of their doctrinal writings and sermons have been translated into English... a wonderful treasury of doctrinal teaching.  And God has wonderfully provided tools in these last days to unlock the still untranslated German writings of these men and others in the old German Missouri Synod.  I will be sharing some of the unlocked treasures as I can.
