After running into Franz Pieper's book, I looked for it at a place that would give it to me more than a page of text at a time to create my PB.  I was unable to find it at my usual haunts for scanned books, however.

But I did find a reply to Pieper's book by Leander Keyser, entitled Election and Conversion; A Frank Discussion of Dr. Pieper's book... I had never heard of Dr. Keyser, to be honest.  He was a professor at Wittenburg College in Ohio - a General Synod school and a member of the General Synod - the Lutheran body probably the farthest away, theologically, from Pieper. He gives thanks for the clarification of Missouri's position and tries to argue that there are other Lutheran - and arguably more Lutheran positions that Lutherans can have on all of this.

Even though I tend to fall closer to "Missouri" than "Ohio" on those late late 19th century debates that were continuing, I do think it is of value to listen to both sides.  From this book I did learn that the General Synod of the early 20th century sounds much more Lutheran than the General Synod of the middle of the 19th century.  In addition, Keyser makes a good point that it is odd (at best) when a Lutheran treatment of Conversion does not even mention Baptism.  I would hope even Dr. Pieper would admit that this should be included in the discussion.

Source was http://archive.org/details/electionconversi00keys . I have included the cover picture from the scan on the first page.

Updated file.  A scanning error fixed.  Since the compiler now handles Latin better, I tagged the Latin words and phrases...

Hi Ken, I spent a good month or two making a copy of this one as well from Archive.org, only today to see that you had done the same work a year before me! And yours is formatted much better! Cheers for the work mate!
