In recounting the history of the denomination, TOdd uses the ministry of women as a case study to show how the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod has continually redefined its concept of authority in order to maintain its own historic identity. Based on oral histories and solid archival research, Authority Vested not only explores the internal life of a significant denomination but also offers critical insights for other churches seeking to maintain their Christian distinctives in religiously pluralistic America.
