Christian Americans…or American Christians
August 3, 2020-August 7, 2020
Following the work of my book, Wholly Citizens, this class will explore more closely what Luther actually taught and practiced with regard to the “doctrine of the two kingdoms” suggesting that what is commonly understood in the US about a “wall of separation” between church and state is a decidedly non-Lutheran approach. Much attention will be focused on the role of the Christian, the church, and her pastor in relation to the wider culture, including the government. The assumption that good Christians make good Americans and vice versa will be thoroughly challenged.
