Dr. Belcher to speak at Bonhoeffer Conference
Dr. Jim Belcher will be speaking this week at the
Bonhoeffer, Christ, and Culture Conference
Thursday and Friday, April 12-13, 2012
Held by Wheaton College
Dr. Belcher will be making the case that if you want to understand Bonhoeffer’s witness while in Nazi prisons for two years–the dramatic impact he had on the guards as well as fellow prisoners, then you must first understand Finkenwalde, the underground seminary that he directed before the Gestapo closed it down. It was there that he learned to live out the Sermon on the Mount (explained in The Cost of Discipleship) and it is there that he developed the daily habit of dying to self through scripture reading, singing of the psalms and intercessory prayer for others that empowered him years later when he was imprisoned for his involvement with the plots to kill Hitler.
