Roger | 3 comments Good day.

I noticed more than a few issues with this particular entry. For the sake of clarity, "Lutheran Service Book" (LSB) contains several orders of worship, hundreds of hymns, etc. and is the main book used by the congregation during worship (ISBN: 0-7586-1217-6). In addition to this service book are other books that are intended to compliment it. This includes (but is not limited to) Lutheran Service Book: Service Book (ISBN: 0-7586-1223-0), Lutheran Service Book: Agenda, which is (ISBN: 0-7586-1224-9), and the one that this topic is about, Lutheran Service Book: Pastoral Care Companion (ISBN: 0-7586-1225-7).

Since I am not a librarian and do not have the authority to modify these things, could a librarian or (if necessary) a super-librarian please make the following changes?

Title: Lutheran Service Book: Pastoral Care Companion
Author: Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod
Author: Commission on Worship, Role: Prepared by
Format: Bonded Leather

An image of the original burgundy soft bonded leather edition is located on Amazon.ca:

Thank you!

Abcdarian | 19392 comments Done. I went with the author as shown on WorldCat, since it already existed on Goodreads. https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

Found & fixed some others also.

There is also this profile: https://www.goodreads.com/author/show... I don't know if this is different from the Commission on Worship or not.

If you do a search for Lutheran Service Book, several other author profiles come up. I've done what I can for today anyway.

Roger | 3 comments You're awesome! Thank you for fixing this and the others.

The Commission on Worship of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod is the correct one to use with all things related to Lutheran Service Book and Lutheran Worship (e.g., Lutheran Worship: Agenda in second link you posted). However, The Lutheran Hymnal (1941) was a joint venture, is attributed to "The Evangelical Lutheral Synodical Conference of North America," and was published by Concordia Publishing House.
I'm not sure about The Lutheran Hymnal: Sight Saving Edition, but it likely is the same as TLH (1941).

Also on the second link you provided is a booklet on The End Times (September 1989)
Cf. http://www.lcms.org/Document.fdoc%3Fs...
This booklet is attributed to the Commission on Theology and Church Relations of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod.

Another booklet on that page, A Statement of Scriptural & Confessional Principles (1973), is only attributed to Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod.
Cf. http://www.lcms.org/Document.fdoc%3Fs...

Lutheran Service Book: Three Year Lectionary, also located on that second link, is attributed to the Commission on Worship of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod.

I'm not sure about the others on the second link you provided, but I hope this helps you out!

Thanks again!
