Benjamin Kurtz (1795-1865) Lutheran minister, editor of the Lutheran Observer in Baltimore 1833-58. "Kurtz was one of the most prominent men in the General Synod and, next to his close friend Samuel Simon Schmucker, the chief exponent of `American Lutheranism.' He was one of the founders of the Synod of Maryland and Virginia (1820), of the General Synod (1820), which was organized in his church, and which he twice served as president, and of the Gettysburg Theological Seminary (1825). As a pastor and preacher he was extraordinarily successful, and his position in Washington County, Md. was almost that of a bishop... His knowledge of theology was limited, but he was strongly evangelical, plain-spoken, and fearless, and against liturgical worship and the Lutheran confessions he waged a vigorous polemical war. He advocated a union of the Lutheran and German Reformed Churches. His doctrinal position is fully set forth in his chief book, Why Are You a Lutheran? (1843), which went through ten editions."--Dict. Amer. Biog X:514. We offer his work on prayer.
