Book Launch: Dietrich Bonhoeffer's Christian Humanism

Wednesday, May 8, 2019 at 7:30PM - 9:00 PM

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

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.
