Charles Marsh to give 14th annual Prophetic Voices Lecture at Boston College

BonhoefferWhat happened to Bonhoeffer while he was in America?

On Thursday, October 8, 2015, Charles Marsh will deliver the 14th Annual Prophetic Voices Lecture, entitled “Bonhoeffer’s Transformative Encounters with the American Prophetic Tradition.” The event will be held from 5:30 p.m to 7:00 p.m. in Higgins 300 at Boston College. Marsh will be available to sign copies of his book, Strange Glory. This presentation is sponsored by Boisi Center for Religion and American Public Life at Boston College.

From Marsh’s lecture abstract:

In the America of the 1930s, among a nearly forgotten but venerable generation of religious radicals, social gospel reformers, and African American prophets, among the shapers of the labor movement, the heroes of the old reformist Left, and among the women and men who plowed the soil for the civil rights movement to come, Bonhoeffer reexamined every aspect of his vocation as pastor and theologian, and he embarked upon what he would call “the turning from the phraseological to the real.” His “journey to reality” is the plot that frames my lecture.
