The author is Associate Professor of Youth, Culture and Mission at Wartburg Theological Seminary in
Dubuque, Iowa. With this publication he gives a voice to a Lutheran contribution to the wider emerging
church conversation. Curious about the world in which we live and informed by the emerging church
conversation, he asks: ‘What does it mean to be church as we live – not as we think or remember or long
for, but as we live God’s mission today?’ He directly and explicitly deals with Christians’ concerns about
being church in a totally different world than the one we used to know.
