Dietrich Bonhoeffer for Our Times
Jewish and Christian Perspectives
September 17-18, 2006
at Hebrew College, Andover-Newton Theological School, and Boston
College

Dietrich Bonhoeffer (1906-1945) has become an icon of resistance and
moral courage. As a pastor and teacher, he was one of the earliest
Protestants to speak out against Nazism and summon his church to oppose
it. As a resistance figure executed for his role in the conspiracy
against the Nazi regime, his prison writings later inspired Christians
throughout the world.

What is Bonhoeffer's legacy for the Jewish-Christian relationship
today? His record of political opposition to Nazism is clear. Does his
contribution to Christian ethical reflection and activism have
implications for non-Christians? What is Bonhoeffer's place as a
theological and political figure in the legacy of the Holocaust? In
this conference, Catholic, Jewish, and Protestant scholars will reflect
on his witness and its legacy for our times.

Sunday, September 17
at Andover-Newton Theological School, Stoddard Hall
7:00 - 9:00 p.m.
Bonhoeffer, the Jewish People, and Post-Holocaust Theology
-Victoria Barnett, US Holocaust Memorial Museum
-Stephen Haynes, Rhodes College
-Moderator/Responder: Shai Held, Jewish Theological Seminary

Registration by September 8, 2006 is required.
