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.

Jeremy Taylor (1613-1667) Church of England bishop and writer. "He was a chaplin in the royalist army in 1642. After imprisonment for a short time, he retired to Wales in 1645 where he lived as chaplain to Lord Carbery at Golden Grove. Many of Taylor's best works were written here... Taylor's fame to-day rests almost entirely on his devotional writings..."--Cross: Oxford Dict. of the Christian Church, p.1325. Taylor's work on extempore prayer is a response to "this book which the Assembly of Divines is pleased to call The Directory for Prayer." He argues against the use of extempore prayer quoting among others scriptures such as Eccles. 5.2 "Be not rash with thy mouth, and let not thy heart be hasty to utter anything before God, for God is in heaven and thou upon earth, therefore let thy words be few."
