0 Reviews
This book is the first history in English of the Lutheran Church in Germany and Scandinavia from 1700 to the end of the First World War. Hope details how the social and political upheaval of the period challenged the structure and ethos of the Reformation churches, and how Protestantism evolved to meet these profound challenges.
