Overview Focuses on topics of interest to Lutherans
Publishers Description The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America professes to be a public church constituted by God for its public vocation. Moe-Lobeda explores what it means for the ELCA to play a role in public life today. Sections focus on what it means to be a public church, obstacles to being a public church in public life, power for being public church, and providing public leadership. For the followers of Jesus, the ''way of living'' in public is a gift of God to the church. It is costly and dangerous, but yet gives life abundant, now and forever.

Being Lutheran in Today's World Mar 24, 2006
If you would like to know what it means to be Lutheran and Christian in today's world this is the book for you. (Along with the wonderful Lutheran Handbook) Dr. Lull gives to us wisdom that puts theology and modern (or post-modern) issues together in a way that directs us to "in the world" Christianity. He was a wonderful teacher that saw faith and life as overlapping not seperate, as some Christian leaders in the US like to teach. If you think grace, love, inclusiveness, and justice are your emphases try this book out.
