Dietrich Bonhoeffer on Preaching

This video was composed for my graduate school, the Institute of Lutheran Theology, ILT.org. This was a promotional video for a graduate seminar on Dietrich Bonhoeffer and his views on preaching. Presented by the Institute of Lutheran Theology and Instructor Doctor Jonathan Sorum. Based on Bonhoeffer's "Discipleship" and related readings... This course explores what it means to preach in the "world come of age" ... A world that understands itself without reference to God. Bonhoeffer said: "We must be able to speak about our faith so that hands will be stretched out toward us faster than we can fill them.... Do not try to make the Bible relevant. Its relevance is axiomatic.... Do not defend God's Word, but testify to it.... Trust to the Word. It is a ship loaded to the very limits of its capacity!" Join us January 8-12, 2018 at the Institute...
