Join us for a special evening lecture with Jens Zimmermann, marking the release of his new book, Dietrich Bonhoeffer's Christian Humanism (Oxford University Press, 2019).
Why did Bonhoeffer think that the Christian life is all about becoming truly
human? Why did he think that both church and government should cooperate
in human flourishing? How do we explain this pacifist's endorsement of
assassinating Hitler to stop the Nazi terror? What does Bonhoeffer mean when
he says that "the sacred is only found in profane, and the revelational only in the
rational? And why would this Protestant theologian so deeply inspired by Karl
Barth consider recovering human rights on the basis of natural moral theology
so important? Dr. Zimmermann will address these and other questions by
claiming that Bonhoeffer's views arise from his Christian humanist outlook
firmly rooted in the mystery of the incarnation.
