'Liberating Lutheran Theology' by Paul Chung just released

Dr. Paul Chung has just co-authored a book on Lutheran theology in the public sphere: Liberating Lutheran Theology. Here's a brief description:

Lutheran theology of freedom at the center of grace of justification may become an arbiter for contextualizing God's grace and human discipleship in the public sphere.

This volume includes three different Lutheran perspectives as represented by European Lutheran theology (Ulrich Duchrow), American Lutheran theology (Craig L. Nessan), and Asian Lutheran theology (Paul Chung), paving a creative dialogue with justice, solidarity, and inculturation in a global context.

Chung's World Christianity strategy for reading Lutheran theology highlights missional ecclesiology as the body of Christ which stands in prophetic engagement with massa perditionis (ochlos-minjung), promoting their full humanity in terms of evangelization, justice, and recognition.
