Endorsements & Reviews-

"Pahl sees things in a way that some of us who lived through the history fo the Walther League don't -- or can't. He has seen and presented the League as it was and for what it really did accomplish. Pahl has done us all a great service."
-- Arnie Kuntz
former LCMS District President

"Pahl brings off his task with panache, beguiling the reader into a nostalgia trip through the joys and jostlings of yesteryear. Giants of the past return to life in these pages, and sometimes stub their toes when they do. But it's all richly documented by an author who has mastered with distinction the crafts of research and writing."
-- Paul L. Maier
Russell H. Seibert Professor of Ancient History, Western Michigan University

"'Hopes and Dreams of All' is an enlightening, moving, and challenging history that must be read if one wishes to understand the impact of the Walther League movement. Jon Pahl skillfully intertwines the mission of the Walther League with that of Wheat Ridge, Valparaiso University, . . . and the church at large."
-- Florence Montz
member, LCMS Board of Directors
