Kleinig Cover (softcover) frontOn Friday, 4 October 2013, at a festive banquet in Springfield, Illinois, attended by Lutherans from across the continent, the Reverend Doctor John W. Kleinig was presented with a Festschrift by DOXOLOGY: The Lutheran Centre for Spiritual Care and Counsel. Dr Kleinig is retired from a long career as pastor and professor of Old Testament and worship at Australian Lutheran College, Adelaide. A DOXOLOGY regular, he was in the US to speak at the centre’s INSIGHT conference.

The Festschrift, entitled You, My People, Shall Be Holy, includes two hymns and 19 essays by colleagues and former students. The volume is published by Concordia Lutheran Theological Seminary, St. Catharines, and edited by Dr John R. Stephenson and Dr Thomas M. Winger. It is available in soft- and hardcover through the print-on-demand service, Lulu.com, with local printing and shipping in many countries. To order, search on Lulu or follow this link:
