Volume 28 Number 1
  • ISSN : 1013-8471



The present volume is the second in a series. The first volume, “You Have the Words of Eternal Life”: Transformative Readings of the Gospel of John from a Lutheran Perspective, focused on the Gospel of John. The present collection “seeks to explore how we read the Old Testament together as Lutheran churches in our different contexts” (9). The essays have their origin in a conference held at Eisenach in 2013, co-organised by the Lutheran World Federation and the University of Jena, Germany. The conference brought together scholars and church leaders from all seven regions of the Lutheran World Federation (Africa being one of them) and included a number of ecumenical guests.
