Living the Faith
A Lutheran Perspective on Ethics
This congregational study invites you to think and talk about how your faith in Jesus Christ shapes the way you live your daily life. “Living the Faith” introduces you to the basics of Christian ethics as viewed from a Lutheran perspective. By drawing upon the Lutheran tradition in the midst of contemporary confusion and debate about ethics, this study offers congregations an insightful and accessible guide for talking together about the Christian life.
This study is meant for small groups of adults or youth who are interested in thinking through how Lutherans approach ethics. The questions in the text and the two sections “Guides for Leaders” and “Small Group Session Questions and Activities” are intended to facilitate discussion of the study. “Living the Faith” follows upon the publication of The Promise of Lutheran Ethics (edited by Karen L. Bloomquist and John R. Stumme, Fortress Press, 1998). This study refers to the essays in that book and helps introduce readers to it. Reading The Promise of Lutheran Ethics and having a copy at hand for reference will enhance your study.
