Professor Paul E. Kretzman led a group of Lutherans who left church fellowship with some Lutheran congregations in 1956 after he was charged with teaching error in class. He and his followers organized the Lutheran Churches of the Reformation. He wrote several Bible Commentaries and translated many hymns.
