The premier issue of this journal highlights and expounds good examples of Lutheran missiology and raises the height and breadth of discussion on mission. The essays included reflect papers and responses from the Summit on Lutheran Mission held in San Antonio, Texas, in November 2013. That event, the first of its kind, focused on Lutheran identity in mission. The desire is that this journal will encourage further discussion and dialogue around Lutheran Mission.
