Many North American Christians see themselves as heirs of the Reformation legacy, for good and ill. But is such a perception accurate?
Bring your lunch and listen as Dr. David S. Robinson presents Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s 1939 essay “Protestantism without Reformation,” particularly his identification of the social differences that mark a “nation of refugees.” The essay offers astute observations—Bonhoeffer has been called a “theological Tocqueville”—on individual freedoms, church unity, and the relation of denominationalism to racial segregation. It also appeals for both rooted historical consciousness and global theological exchange, critical components to a vibrant church “confession” for the twenty-first century.
The lecture will be followed by a brief Q & A period.
