Join us for the first in a multi-part series on the Election Controversy in American Lutheranism, a struggle that had its roots in Reformation-era disputes about free will, Scripture’s clarity, and God’s election of grace. We look at the basics of the doctrine of election or predestination, Luther’s dispute with Erasmus, and the developments during Lutheran Orthodoxy that brought so much contention to American Lutherans centuries later.
