A Community and a Perspective book.

A Community and a Perspective book.

Steven A. Schroeder is Distinguished Professor of Health and Health Care at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), where he also heads the Smoking Cessation Leadership Center. He served as the president and CEO of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation from 1990 to 2002. Schroeder is known for his work in promoting smoking cessation strategies.

Lanham, M. University Press of America, 1993. viii + 127 pp. Mark A. Granquist (a1). St. Olaf CollegeNorthfield, Minnesota.

He is the author of two previous books (A Community and a Perspective: Lutheran Peace Fellowship and the Edge of the Church, 1941-1991 and Virginia Woolf's Subject and the Subject of Ethics), as well as numerous scholarly articles in philosophy and religious studies.

This book was exhaustive. This is almost a reference book. It is very good reading, informative and has a great perspective on today's and yesterday's education. At times it was enlightening and stimulating, but more often it was a challenge to stay engaged while reading due to the dense nature of the text. The authors are clearly experts and thorough educational historians. However, be prepared for chapters that seem to never end and a textbook that is not necessarily chronological at all times. I have used mine for three years and will use it for years to come. I'll never re-sell this one!

This book is a study of the Lutheran Peace Fellowship (LPF), which celebrated its 50th anniversary in 1991, and its impact on the social teaching of the Lutheran Church in the United States. Schroeder documents LPF's development as a case study of the relationship between the Church's "edge" and the shape it takes in the world. That pacifism has never been the majority position in the Lutheran tradition does not mean, Schroeder asserts, that it has been irrelevant or insignificant to the understanding of Lutheran identity and theology.Contents: Foreword, John Backe; Living Our Life; Doing What the Reformers Did; A Word That Matters; Where Is the Church?; A Community and a Perspective; Becoming More Organized?; Beginnings Everywhere; Afterword, Bonnie Block.
