Bonhoeffer

The staff is reading through Life Together and discussing it at Staff Meetings. Life Together was written just before World War II by the German theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer when he was living and teaching at an underground seminary. The school was eventually found and shut down by the Nazis, but Bonhoeffer’s insight and wisdom on the common life of believers is still incredibly relevant and thought provoking.

I like these bits from Chapter 2:

“One who will not learn to handle the Bible for himself is not an evangelical Christian.”

“But, of course, we must admit that the Scriptures are still largely unknown to us. Can the realization of our fault, our ignorance of the Word of God, have any other consequence than that we should earnestly and faithfully retrieve what has been neglected? And should not ministers be the very first to get to work at this point?”
