Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy
Sunday Mornings @ 9:00am*
Led by: Karl Hays & Scott Simpson
WHO BETTER TO FACE THE GREATEST EVIL OF THE 20TH CENTURY THAN A HUMBLE MAN OF FAITH?
As Adolf Hitler and the Nazis seduced a nation, bullied a continent, and attempted to exterminate the Jews of Europe, a small number of dissidents and saboteurs worked to dismantle the Third Reich from the inside. One of these was Dietrich Bonhoeffer—a pastor and author.
This study is based on the book Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy by Eric Metaxas. It, looks at both strands of Bonhoeffer’s life—the theologian and the spy—and draws them together to tell a searing story of incredible moral courage in the face of monstrous evil. Metaxas presents the fullest accounting of Bonhoeffer’s heart-wrenching decision to leave the safe haven of America to return to Hitler’s Germany, and sheds new light on Bonhoeffer’s involvement in the famous Valkyrie plot and in “Operation 7,” the effort to smuggle Jews into neutral Switzerland.
We invite you to join us on Sunday mornings, beginning this coming week (October 25th) at 9:00am for an opportunity to explore Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s life. Each week’s lesson will feature a video led by Eric Metaxas. Discussion will be led each week by Karl Hays and Scott Simpson.
