My Savior’s Guest

I don’t think I ever blogged this title: My Savior’s Guest: A Festschrift in Honor of Erling Trygve Teigen. I believe Dr. Teigen is a professor emeritus at Bethany Lutheran College and a longtime writer of articles for Logia and various other Lutheran journals.

Published back in May, various authors contributed essays to honor the familiar Prof. Teigen.

Here’s the Amazon blurb:

The name Erling T. Teigen is familiar to many Lutherans around the world. The articles in this Festschrift are both theological and personal, reflecting the views of the individual authors, some of them also giving glimpses of instructive and sometimes humorous interactions with Prof. Teigen. The title of the book-My Savior’s Guest-occurs in the English translations of two Scandinavian hymns: “O Jesus, At Your Altar Now” by Thomas Kingo (1634-1703) and “How Blest Are They Who Hear God’s Word” by Norwegian Lutheran bishop Johan Nordahl Brun (1745-1816).
