Overview

In Piety, Politics, and Power, David Grafton examines the origins of the American Lutheran missionary movement in the Middle East, with a focus on its encounter with Muslims and the varied Lutheran theological responses toward Islam. The narrative is placed within historical context to provide an overarching background of Middle Eastern history and Christian-Muslim relations. The survey covers Lutheran missionary communities in Persia, Iraq, Egypt, Lebanon, Jerusalem, and the West Bank; including those working for the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missionaries, the Anglican Church Missionary Society, the Lutheran Orient Mission, the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod, and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.
