The Swedish Luther Renaissance began at the turn of the twentieth century and flourished through three generations of theologians who brought the challenges of their own day to their study of Luther. The last of these theologians, Gustaf Wingren, saw an increasing and deadly disjunction between faith and life in the church. Reading Luther he found two lively intersections: Christian vocation and proclamation. Using the methodology of his mentors, Wingren breathed new life into the Reformer’s work and developed a Lutheran theology for his place and time.
The Author: Mary Elizabeth Anderson earned her Ph.D. in church history from Luther Seminary in Saint Paul, Minnesota. She currently teaches at Saint Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota. Her areas of interest include the Reformation and the twentieth-century Luther Renaissance.
