 Description: "This series on the history of Lutherans in America transports learners through four centuries of the planting of the Lutheran church in this new land…Ths story is characterized by the tension between honoring the European roots of the church and adapting to the new realities of American life. The Lutheran church, from its earliest days, faced religious pluralism, intolerance, lack of state support and diversity of languages and traditions. It wasn't easy then, and it isn't easy now. But understanding American Lutheran history can change the way we see ourselves and our future." DVD cover
