The Lutheran World Federation (LWF), founded in 1947 by representatives of 47 Lutheran churches, virtually all from Europe and North America, now numbers 122 member churches on all continents. At its founding it saw itself as a free association of Lutheran churches a self-understanding that has matured to a communion of churches.From Federation to Communion traces the fifty-year history of the LWF by comprehensively and critically surveying its dominant concerns and activities -- service, mission, theology, ecclesiology, ecumenics, inclusiveness, and political and social justice.

The volume, which features more than fifty photographs, also includes a handbook that provides a review of all LWF assemblies together with biographies of each Federation president and general secretary.
