Description

Professor Heussi? I Thought You are a Book is an entertaining account of six decades of graduate education with the subtitle A Memoir of Memorable Theological Educators, 1950-2010. In personal encounters as well as in books, academic icons appear on the horizon of memory: Viktor Frankl in Vienna, Karl Barth in Basel, Carl Jung in Zurich, Reinhold Niebuhr in New York, Paul Tillich at Harvard, and the doctor father Roland Bainton at Yale. They are mixed with has-beens, upstarts, and other special professorial characters. In this memoir of Lutheran scholar, Eric Gritsch, these accounts are also fed with collegial encounters during his thirty-three years of teaching and research in church history at the Gettysburg Lutheran Seminary, with international excursions for Luther research and ecumenical dialogue with Roman Catholics. Ambition, stamina, and humor are ingredients that spike this cocktail of theological education of a native of Austria in the 1950s and 60s. Connoisseurs of anecdotal learning will find some satisfaction in this personal history of graduate studies in Europe and in the United States. The Rev. Eric W. Gritsch (PhD Yale) is Emeritus Professor of Church History at the Gettysburg Lutheran Seminary. He is the author of several books, including Martin--God's Court Jester: Luther in Retrospect (1983, 2009); The Boy from the Burgenland: From Hitler Youth to Seminary Professor (2006); The Wit of Martin Luther (2006); Toxic Spirituality: Four Enduring Temptations of Christian Faith (2009).
