Contributors to this book analyze areas of Martin Luther's and Lutheran theology that have otherwise been neglected or under-represented in the five hundred years since the Reformation. They widen the scope of Luther and Lutheran theology by viewing both from the perspectives of the "subaltern," those whose voices are barely or rarely heard. The book formulates an inclusive Lutheran theology that reaches out but does not close out. The book's sections address "Precarious Life," from Luther's own precarious existence as an outlaw under a death sentence; "Body and Gender," addressing different aspects of gender and sexuality; "Women and Sexual Abuse," focusing on Luther's exegesis of biblical "texts of terror"; and "Economy, Equality, and Equity," addressing Lutheran views on economy and equality that break new ground regarding common goods and the Anthropocene.
