When his siblings challenged Dietrich Bonhoeffer's decision to become a theologian, saying the church was "a poor, boring, petty and bourgeois institution," he replied: "In that case I shall reform it." As fate--or providence--would have it, Bonhoeffer spent much of his life seeking to reform the church that was losing its way in Nazi Germany.
The Chidester Lecture Series continued on January 17-18, with Nancy Duff, the Stephen Colwell Associate Professor of Christian Ethics at Princeton Theological Seminary. She presented the life and thought of Bonhoeffer and its significance for the Christian community in the U.S. today.
