Luther's conviction was that government is responsible to God for containing evil and maintaining peace and good order, and for ensuring that no person is hungry or in want.
The book asks critical questions: When should the church support the state's agenda? When should it resist? What are the options for critical but constructive cooperation?
This helpful volume includes essays from leading Lutheran theologians, a summary description of what this means for local ministry, and a study guide to encourage conversation and action.
