Publisher's Description

Proposes creative implications of the 500-year Reformation tradition for today

As the global church assesses the legacy of the Lutheran Reformation, Alberto García and John Nunes in this book reimagine central Reformational themes from black, Hispanic, and other perspectives traditionally at the margins of catholic-evangelical communities.

Focusing on the central theme of justification, García and Nunes delve into three interlinked aspects of the church's life in the world—martyria (witness), diakonia (service), and koinōnia (fellowship). They argue that it is critically important and vitally enriching for the whole church, especially Eurocentric Protestant churches, to learn from the grassroots theological emphases of Christian communities in the emerging world.

Editorial Reviews

Justo L. González
"How are we to read and interpret the Protestant Reformation as we come to its fifth centennial? This book is necessary reading for any who attempt to answer that question. Its wide vistas of the meaning of the Reformation for the twenty-first century will challenge many preconceived notions and open new venues for thought."

Martin E. Marty
—from the foreword
"Where are we now? García and Nunes, by telling some stories of 'elsewhere,' help readers find 'here,' where we are called . . . to care for others whom we have overlooked before. The new vision is liberating."
