Wholly Citizens: Bierman on the Two Kingdoms

All Current Features

Wholly Citizens: God’s Two Realms and Christian Engagement With the World — Luther’s framework of the two realms is often misunderstood and misrepresented.  Bierman wisely begins his work not with Rom. 13 but with Luther’s provocative treatment of Ps. 82. He examines Luther’s later interpreters–some accurate, others not so much–and how the two kingdoms doctrine has been bungled.  Both the corporate church and the Christian are God’s left-hand kingdom, and both are called to be engaged.
