Lutheran Identity and Political Theology
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"Informed and calibrated by Lutheran Reformation insights, this collection of essays by North American and Scandinavian scholars shows that Lutheran theology can tackle important issues among denominations and in society. The reader is confronted here with a plethora of insights into the relevance of Lutheran theology on a global scale."
--Hans Schwarz, Regensburg University, Regensburg, Germany
"On the contemporary scene, religion becomes increasingly more globalized. These contributions reflect the global character of contemporary Lutheranism. We are presented with a rich collection of essays that discusses a wide variety of issues, ranging from religion in society and culture, to gender, health, sex, and politics. This volume shows how a distinct Lutheran theological identity takes the contemporary world seriously."
--Jan-Olav Henriksen, Norwegian School of Theology, Oslo, Norway
"Lutheran identity is in transition in a world of rapid changes. Old Lutheran land becomes multicultural. New Lutheran churches find their own ways. This book displays a broad spectrum of twenty-first-century Lutheran identity from both the South and the North. It follows a new trend of rethinking Lutheran political theology, going far beyond mere repristination, of interest for anyone concerned about theology, politics, and the ambiguities of life."
--Bo Kristian Holm, Aarhus University, Aarhus, Denmark
