The immediate purpose of this study was to describe the life and work of Martin Guenther. The ultimate purpose, and that upon which the validity of the study rests, was to analyze the significance which Guenther's work had for the history of The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod. This last objective received further stimulus by the question raised in the writer's mind about the previous recognition, or better, lack of recognition, of Guenther's work, especially by those who were his contemporaries, Was Guenther so unimportant for the Missouri Synod, that his work was largely unrecognized?
