“Costly Discipleship and Contemporary Culture: Bonhoeffer as a Model for Religious Activism”
Length: 67 minutes
In this lecture, part of the two-day conference “Dietrich Bonhoeffer for Our Times: Jewish and Christian Perspectives,” three panelists discuss ways Bonhoeffer's writings can provide intellectual guidance to modern religious activism, including fundamentalism. 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 Or Rose, faculty member of the Me'ah Graduate Institute at Hebrew College; David Gushee, professor of moral philosophy at Union University; and James Bernauer, professor of philosophy at Boston College. The panel is moderated by Clifford Green, executive director of the Bonhoeffer Works Project.
