Dietrich Bonhoeffer: Discipleship Come of Age

This course will seek to disentangle Lutheran pastor and theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer's thought through a close reading of two of his most important texts, The Cost of Discipleship and Letters and Papers from Prison, placing his theology in its social and historical context.

The course, taught by parishioner Laura Nelson, Ph.D., will take place in the Mercer School of Theology. Register for free at
