Lunchtime Lecture: Protestantism without Reformation — Bonhoeffer’s View of the North American Churches

Wednesday, Feb 28, 2018 at 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM (Pacific Time)

This event has now ended. Please view this page to see all our upcoming events.

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.

Regent College, Room 100
