In this collection, you’ll get a wealth of recent Lutheran scholarship that deepens our insight into the nuances of Luther’s thought and expands our understanding of Lutheran history and contemporary church life. Scholars including Timothy Wengert, Robert Kolb, and Eric Gritsch unpack the Luther’s doctrine of law, examine the modern Lutheran church and its place in American life, confront Luther’s writings on Jews, and look at changes in the liturgy of the Church of Sweden, asking important questions about church liturgy, history, and change relevant not only to Lutherans, but to all Christian churches. Several works included are made available in English for the first time, and including the thought of Finnish theologian Tuomo Mannermaa of Helsinki University.
