The Gift of Grace: The Future of Lutheran Theology
Niels Henrik Gregersen
Fortress Press - Religion - 368 pages
This landmark volume, the first of two, assesses the prospects and promise of Lutheran theology at the opening of a new millennium. From four continents, the thirty noted and respected contributors not only gauge how such classic themes as grace, the cross, and justification wear today but also look to key issues of ecumenism, social justice, global religious life, and the impact of contemporary science on Christian belief.
