Overview

Wholly Citizens: God's Two Realms and Christian Engagement with the World by Joel Biermann

Wholly Citizens addresses the relation between the church and world in the Reformation's teaching of two realms—especially as presented by Luther. The book argues that most interpreters misappropriate Luther by seeing him as a supporter of a wall of separation. Likewise, those clamoring for the preservation of the rights of Christians and the church are also out of step with a right understanding of the two realms; instead, the corporate church and individuals are responsible for the world and must speak directly about and to it in meaningful ways.
