Lecture on Dietrich Bonhoeffer: Theologian and Martyr

Sanctuary, Trinity Wall Street, Broadway and Wall, NYC, 10:00AM-11:00AM, Sunday, June 14, 2015

J. Chester Johnson presented a lecture at Trinity Wall Street, New York City, on Sunday morning, 10:00AM-11:00AM, June 14, 2015 on the life and beliefs of the great German theologian, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, who was martyred at the Flossenburg concentration camp by the Nazis two weeks before the liberation of the camp by American forces in April, 1945. Mr. Johnson discussed the way in which Bonhoeffer’s life experiences impacted his views, as reflected in his significant writings, including Sanctorum Communio, The Cost of Discipleship, Ethics, and Letters & Papers From Prison, among others. Bonhoeffer, as a principal figure in the establishment of spiritual direction for the 20th and 21st centuries through both his life and word, has helped shape the modern and post-modern worlds.
