Item Description...
Overview
In an age marked by controversy over public support of religious schools, federal encouragement of religious providers of social services, and sexuality education, the whole arena of church-state relations appears in flux. In this volume, seven experts probe the meaning of religion in public life for Christians when the "Protestant establishment" has given way to pervasive religious pluralism and a growing secularism. Working specifically out of Lutheran traditions, the authors probe the deeper legal, moral, and religious questions at issue in the current debate. They not only rethink classical sources about law and gospel and two-kingdoms theory but also resurrect neglected resources for Christian civil resistance. They then look to contemporary developments and show how functional interaction of church and state is compatible with their strong institutional separation. Finally, three chapters probe the most hotly contested First Amendment questions: religious liberty, education, and land use. Contributors include: Mary Jane Haemig, Gary M. Simpson, John R. Stumme, Susan Kosche Vallem, Mary C. Stenshoel, Marie Failinger, and Robert W. Tuttle.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Nice Reading Collection of ELCA Perspective  Jun 11, 2007
This is collection of ELCA perspectives on the difficult doctrine of church and state. Especially this is so for the Lutheran who sees this as a tension, even paradoxical relationship. Thus, here is this tension viewed through the differing tangents of: legal, confessional and social ministry.

What I share with these authors is the difficulty of transposing the past history of church and state to differing government environment. Not sure if we agree exactly on the word "gospel", due to knowledge that most official ELCA positions on this differs from my own confessional stance.

This is very articulate, challenging and stimulating discussion of the church/state relationship as seen by Lutherans.
 
Concerning the meaning of religion in public life  Jul 16, 2003
Collaboratively compiled by John R. Stumme (Director of Studies for the Division for Church in Society, Evangelical Lutheran Church in America) and Robert W. Tuttle (Associate Professor of Law, George Washington University Law School), Church & State: Lutheran Perspectives collects the investigations, commentaries and analysis of seven experts concerning the meaning of religion in public life in a world with growing religious pluralism and secularism. Legal contexts of church-state interaction; the role of Lutheran social ministry in promoting general welfare; issues of land use regulation; and much, much more comprise the balanced and in-depth discussions that are presented in this very highly recommended contribution to Church/State Studies reading lists and reference collections.
