The young pastor, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, began his ministry during a time of severe political turbulence in Europe. Right-wing fascists were gaining ground, concocting imaginary enemies that propelled nationalist demagogues like Mussolini, Hitler, and Franco to power.
Today, similar evils continue to threaten and precipitate political and social collapse, as we are witnessing the rise of religious nationalism across the globe.
The Dietrich Bonhoeffer Institute’s namesake was a leader ahead of his time. By promoting his writings, examining his ideas, and applying his insights to our contemporary challenges, we are summoning Bonhoeffer to help us today.
We bring his voice into our time with the resources we produce offering Bonhoefferian perspectives on immigration, gun violence, and politicized religion. We find his spirit living on, when we curate and convene outstanding and emerging leaders who are taking on these challenges in their ongoing work.
You can help us bring Bonhoeffer to ours and future generations by becoming a supporter of The Dietrich Bonhoeffer Institute.
