With the present number the CONCORDIA THEOLOGICAL MONTHLY begins the second decade of its existence. We cannot but think of the gaps that have been made in the ranks of our leaders during the ten years that have been concluded. To mention but two losses, in 1931 our great dogmatician, Dr. F. Pieper, was taken from us, and 1939 saw the departure of our great churchman Dr. F. Pfotenhauer. In these two men we had representatives of the second generation of our church-body, men who had studied under Dr. Walther and one of whom, Dr. Pieper, had even been a colleague of Dr. Walther. These fathers were bridges spanning the gulf separating our time from that of the founders of our Synod. They were like "the elders that overlived Joshua and had known of the works of the Lord that He had done for Israel," Josh. 24:31.
