Like other major Protestant denominations in the United States, the 2.6-million-member Luther Church-Missouri Synod (LCMS), founded in 1847, has struggled with issues of relevance and identity in society at large. In this book Mary Todd chronicles the history of this struggle for identity in the LCMS, critically examining the central--often contentious--issue of authority in relation to Scripture, ministry, and the role of women in the church. In recounting the history of the denomination, Todd uses the ministry of women as a case study to show how the LCMS has continually redefined its concept of authority in order to maintain its own historic identity. Based on oral histories and solid archival research, Authority Vested not only explores the internal life of a significant denomination but also offers critical insights for other churches seeking to maintain their Christian distinctives in religiously pluralistic America.

"In Authority Vested Mary Todd chronicles the history of this struggle for identity in the LCMS, critically examining the central - often contentious - issue of authority in relation to Scripture, ministry, and the role of women in the church. After recounting the history of the denomination, Todd uses the ministry of women as a case study of the process by which the synod has continually redefined its concept of authority in order to maintain its own historic identity as a confessional Lutheran church body." "Based on oral histories and on solid archival research, Authority Vested not only explores the internal life of a significant denomination but also offers vital insights for other churches trying to maintain their Christian distinctives in religiously pluralistic America."--BOOK JACKET.
