A New Documentary Film Based on the book by Robert P. Ericksen

A Special Viewing of this New Film
Followed by a Panel Discussion

Emanuel Hirsch, Gerhard Kittel and Paul Althaus were three of the most prominent Christian scholars in twentieth century Germany. They were also outspoken supporters of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi party. How did this happen? What relationship exists between their political choices and their scholarship? This provocative film asks questions that are of importance for every community of theological education.

Panel Members
Prof. Gordon Kaufman, Harvard Divinity School
Prof. Sharon Thornton, Andover Newton Theological School
Prof. Dick Pierard, Gordon College
Professor Rick Lints, Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary
Moderator, Prof. Mark Heim, Andover Newton

Sponsored by the Boston Theological Society and The Boston Theological Institute

The bookstore will close throughout the semester on Wednesdays for Chapel. Come along with us to worship!
