Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s Christology and Theological Method in Contemporary Conversation
This project seeks to explore the Christology and theological method of German theologian and political dissident Dietrich Bonhoeffer in conversation with three leading contemporary theologians who represent different trajectories for systematic theology today. It examines the way in which Bonhoeffer’s own theological method helps navigate between various methodological impasses for the discipline through his particular emphases on the person of Jesus Christ.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer is a theologian whose work and life crosses many boundaries—political, pastoral, theological, and ethical. I’m really interested in exploring his life and work through my doctoral research for the ways in which it helps theological scholarship and the Christian church continue to adapt and evolve in light of the various challenges facing the twenty-first century.
