Important as are the major theological movements in America and Germany between 1887 and 1932 for an understanding of the Middle Period of the history of the Missouri Synod, even more important are the movements within Lutheranism in America during this time. These movements, to state the self-evident, have their roots in previous periods. Without an understanding of these movements, however, the doctrinal formulations of the Missouri Synod, especially of A Brief Statement cannot be understood adequately.
