together by grace is a book of articles that “explore the rich and lasting legacy of Martin Luther and the Reformation.

Kleinhans, and consists of several articles in six general topic areas: The Faith We Confess, From the Sixteenth Century to Today, Worship and the Arts, Faith Active in Love, Being Lutheran Together in a Wider World, and Voices and Places: Stories from the Global Lutheran Family.
