Background may be tough, but worth finding out

Finnish-Canadians associated with the Finnish language Lutheran churches (ELCIC)would find this study interesting. While the religion-associated war rhetoric is long buried in Finland, my experience is that it is (at times) alive and well in Finnish language ELCIC affiliates - though depending on the composition of the congregation and on the values shared by the incumbent pastor. - The main reason for the situation is, I think, the fact that much of the 50s emigration to Canada (from Finland) had a political motivation and the mood has not changed much over the decades. This book would open some of the origins of much of that "nationalistic" (Finnish) preaching in Canada. The teachings of Martin Luther posed some problems though as he had, indeed, some reservations.
