No other magazine offers members of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) the range of inspirational and informative stories found in The Lutheran.
Delivered directly to subscribers' homes each month, The Lutheran is recognized for its award-winning content and design. It is an excellent adult education resource. In-depth study guides are developed for two or three articles in each issue and are available online at www.thelutheran.org. Using these study guides and the magazine, many congregations find The Lutheran to be the answer to the sometimes perplexing question of what to use for adult education, congregational forums, Sunday school classes and small group studies. Use them for faith-stretching discussions today. The stories and guides range in topic from current issues in church and society to spiritual formation to inspirational stories about individuals and congregations, and cover both global and local stories.
As a partner in God's mission, The Lutheran shares with the ELCA's diverse membership the stories of God's people living their faith.
