Before his untimely death in May of 2014, Dr. Kenneth Hagen expressed an interest that his next project consist of a collection of his past articles and essays.. He states: “For some time I have had a vision to put together a collection of my writings. One reason is that some of my writings appeared in confessional-Lutheran publications, not well known outside Lutheran-confessional circles,”  and another, more important reason he says is: “I’ve always wanted something for my students and colleagues.” Hagen began gathering the dispersed articles, often buried in journals that are difficult of access, and with the great help of Aldemar Hagen, his shorter writings are now available in one volume for the first time.
