Podcast Description: Many have heard of his name – Dietrich Bonhoeffer. And many know he was a martyr under the Nazi regime during World War II. Yet, what many do not know, is that he was a theologian, a professor, a humanitarian, an ethicist, a prolific writer, and his most dearest role, an Evangelical pastor who loved the church and called it to take the higher, yet more difficult road, during the most turbulent time in history. We can glean from Bonhoeffer’s approach in examining and proposing solutions to the various crises, controversies, and conflicts that he encountered in his era – and that we encounter in our world today. Join us on our journey of not only discovering Dietrich Bonhoeffer, but on continuing his work to restore integrity to a Christianity contaminated and disfigured by political cooptation and exploitation.
