On Bonhoeffer’s Reception of Luther
On Wednesday, September 20, Michael P. DeJonge will deliver a guest lecture at UVA. With a focus on his recent book, Bonhoeffer’s Reception of Luther, the discussion will show how Bonhoeffer’s positions on a range of ethical-political issues – from race, to war and peace, to resisting state injustice – rest on a complex and balanced account of the relationship between theology and political life inherited through the Lutheran tradition. The talk will begin at 3:30 pm in Gibson Hall 142. Admission is free and the public is invited to attend.
For more background information on the topic, read one of DeJonge’s papers, “Martin Luther, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, and Political Theologies,” in the Oxford Research Encyclopedia here.
