George Wolfgang Forell joined the faculty of the School of Religion at The University of Iowa in 1954. Except for occasional semesters lecturing in universities and seminaries in Europe, Asia, and Africa, as well as in America, his career has been centered in Iowa City. Director of the School of Religion from 1966 to 1971, he was named Carver Distinguished Professor of Religion in 1973. His national and international reputation is based on his work in the field of Christian ethics, especially in the period of the Protestant Reformation. His many publications include Faith Active in Love: The History of Christian Ethics, The Augsburg Confession: A Contemporary Commentary, Christian Social Teachings: The Proclamation of the Gospel in a Pluralistic World, and The Luther Legacy.
