Endorsements

What Ronald Duty and Marie Failinger have accomplished has never been done before! Until now, Lutherans have remained largely absent from the vigorous, interdisciplinary field of law and religion. Together for the first time, Lutheran authorities in the fields of secular law and Christian theology explore how classic Lutheran themes offer wisdom for contemporary legal questions. This volume will surely kindle future engagement.
-Gary Simpson
Luther Seminary

The political theology of Martin Luther continues to have a tremendous effect on the political imagination of the West. At last we have a volume that examines pressing issues at the intersection of law and morality - religious freedom, racism, climate change, restorative justice - through the realistic and creative lens of Lutheran thought. The insights provided by this distinguished interdisciplinary group of authors are of broad and ecumenical relevance.
