Did Martin Luther advocate modern secular states, leaving Christian morality out of the public sphere? Or did he hopelessly confuse church and state? Did he have a consistent political approach? Dispelling myths and misinterpretations, Jarrett Carty explores Luther’s political thought in Divine Kingdom, Holy Order, the first major anthology focused on the reformer’s political writings.
The second “Lutheranism and the Classics” conference at Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne, Ind. (Sept. 28–29, 2012) presents an opportunity to consider what the wisdom and literature of the ancient past can contribute to Christian faith and life today. CPH editor Dr. Benjamin Mayes will be at the conference, and looks forward to meeting you. E-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to schedule a meeting.
