“Formation of the Religious Conscience after the Shoah: Bonhoeffer's Spirituality for Today”

In this lecture, part of the two-day conference “Dietrich Bonhoeffer for Our Times: Jewish and Christian Perspectives,” three panelists examine the spirituality of Bonhoeffer's writings, including his influence in post-Holocaust Jewish and Christian theology. Bonhoeffer (1906-45), a German Protestant theologian, was a proponent of ecumenism and uniting humanism with traditional Christian thought; he was also a Nazi resistor, which led to his death.

Speaking in this lecture are Lisa Dahill, assistant professor of worship and Christian spirituality at Trinity Lutheran Seminary; Marc Krell, University of California, Riverside; and Stephen Pope, professor of theology at Boston College. The panel is moderated by Victoria Barnett, staff director for the committee on church relations at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.
