Williams and Bonhoeffer…

At Sewanee.  And even if you don’t want to drive there from upper Slovenia, you can watch it on live stream.

The annual DuBose Lectures will be held on Sept. 28 and 29, 2016 on the campus of the University of the South’s School of Theology. This year the School of Theology welcomesDr. Rowan Williams as the esteemed guest lecturer. All lectures will take place in Guerry Auditorium.

The live-stream link for the open conversation on Sept. 29 will be available here at 1:30 p.m. central time.

Bonhoeffer Revisited: from Christology to Politics: Dietrich Bonhoeffer still attracts attention and admiration as a thinker and as a Christian witness. There has been much excellent new biographical study but some aspects of his theology still need drawing out. During the 1930s, even as he was shaping his responses to the political crisis of the age, he continued to wrestle with the theological roots of public commitment. These lectures will look at developments in his thinking in the hope of clarifying how he saw his resistance to political tyranny not just as a matter of discipleship in general, but as the center-point of a Christological politics.

Bonhoeffer….  ick.  He was the Joel Osteen of the Reich.
