To describe adequately the Lutheran Army chaplain is a little more difficult. Although all the material mentioned would apply to him in a general way, other factors need to be brought into the picture which are not given expression in any of the literature that has been produced about the chaplain and his work. The doctrinal position of our Church, its polity, its missionary character, and its devotion to the Holy Scriptures as the only norm of doctrine and rule of life are all matters which affect the status of the Lutheran Army chaplain, emphasize his need, and tend to enlarge his problems. All these factors must act as background for an adequate picture of the Lutheran Army chaplain.
