Bonhoeffer! 
Join Dean Hunter, Diane Manko-Cliff, and Mike Dagle as they touch on some of the writings of one of the most important voices of Christianity in the 20th century, as well as a relevant voice for our times. Dietrich Bonhoeffer was a German Lutheran cleric who studied in the US, returned to Germany, and in 1939 took an appointment to Union Theological Seminary in New York. Within months of his arrival in the States he wrote to his friend and colleague Reinhold Niebuhr to say that he could have no place in the restoration of Germany if he did not travail with the people resisting the Nazi regime. It is reported that he was aboard the last steamer to cross the Atlantic. In April ’43 he was arrested and he was hanged in April ’45 just two weeks before the concentration camp at Flossenbürg was liberated. The Cost of Discipleship (a modern classic), Ethics, and Letters and Papers from Prison are among his most widely regarded works, along with countless sermons and letters. The class  will run from 9:30 a.m.-10:30 a.m. in the  Crowley Room.

Finally the class will examine what the Gospels teach about Jesus’ ministry, message, death and resurrection, with excursions into the quest for the historical Jesus and the historical reliability of the Gospels. The class begins with dinner at 6:00 p.m., followed by the class at 6:30 and concludes about 8:00 p.m. A free-will offering will be
