Stories from Global Lutheranism
A Historical Timeline
In an engaging and accessible style, Matrtin J. Lohrmann introduces readers to fascinating glimpses of faith, courage, and love in action within the global Lutheran community that now numbers over 70 million members in churches worldwide. This growth matches the expansive view of the church universal that the Reformers held when they presented the Augsburg Confession in 1530.
Black Power and the American Myth
50th Anniversary Edition
In 1970, C. T. Vivian, a close colleague of Martin Luther King, Jr. and a member of his executive staff, sat down to take stock of the civil rights movement and the progress it had made. His assessment was that it failed, and that the blame lay in the existence of myths about America.
As prophetic today as it was 50 years ago, Vivian’s voice rings out as a critique and a call to action for a society in deep need of justice and peace.
