Mission and Persecution

Mission and persecution: second issue
of Journal of Lutheran Mission released

What do mission and persecution have to do with each other? Why did Luther call the latter the seventh mark of the Church?

In the second issue of the Journal of Lutheran Mission, confessional church leaders from around the world discuss suffering and persecution through a uniquely Lutheran lens. Authors expound on timely topics such as “Christian Martyrdom,” “Sub Cruce Revelate: The Cross as a Mark of the Church — An Exegetical Perspective,” “Suffering Persecution and Martyrdom as a Mark of the Church: How Has This Affected Theological Education? A Practical Perspective from Africa” and more.

Download the issue for free here, and then be sure to like the Journal of Lutheran Mission on Facebook to get updates when future issues and articles are posted.

For help discussing suffering and persecution with children, college students and others, download the June/July issue of The Lutheran Witness here.
