Description

This unique collection of excerpts from Lutheran historical and theological documents—many translated here for the first time—presents readers with a full picture of how the Lutheran movement developed in its thought and practice.

The editors’ judicious selections and helpful introductions acquaint readers with both the enduring characteristics and changing features of this revolutionary Christian movement, always with an eye to how it affected and was experienced by ordinary people. Volume one covers the period from the Reformation to the rise of Pietism. Volume Two analyzes the evolution of post-Enlightenment Lutheranism as it spreads to all the religions of the world.

Accessible and relevant.

Offering a panorama of Lutheranism’s resilience and growth over the last five hundred years, this book engages readers with the pulse of Lutheranism’s most significant leaders and their responses to movements such as the Enlightenment, industrialization, urbanization, immigration, and globalization. Lund’s and Granquist’s introductions to each chapter provide a context for each of the selected readings and so make them accessible and relevant. Effective church leaders know their family history. They find it to be a source of strength and encouragement. As Lutherans anticipate their continuing mission in the world, this volume will well serve such leaders, as well as anyone interested in Lutheranism’s historical depth and global breadth.
