New Book Series on World Christianity

The new Encounters in World Christianity (EWC) series is an outcome of Luther Seminary's commitment to world Christianity and the mission of God in the contemporary world of many cultures, religions and political systems. It is funded by the Justice and Christian Community Program and the Global Mission Institute, and published through Lutheran University Press. Since it is widely acknowledged that the gravity of Christianity is shifting to Africa, Asia and Latin America, we hope that this new forum will provide opportunities for theologians from these continents to publish their contributions.

EWC is supplemented by the Contemporary Issues in Mission & World Christianity series which is geared more toward use in the congregations and reflects ecclesial / Christian life subjects. The following five books, written by Luther Seminary graduates, make up the series and can be ordered through the Luther Seminary bookstore.
