Meet Dietrich Bonhoeffer w/ Charles Marsh

Dietrich Bonhoeffer remains one the 20th century’s greatest and most influential theologians. In this episode Dr. Marsh and I discuss our love for Bonhoeffer, his life, theology, and more. Charles recently published a Bonhoeffer biography titled Strange Glory that I couldn’t put down. In this episode you get to hear us talk about some of the fresh insights into Bonhoeffer’s life and thought Marsh unpacked in his book. We will discuss his fascination with Catholicism, friendship with Karl Barth, his childhood neighbor Adolf Von Harnack, the influence of Reinhold Niebuhr on him, and his homoerotic friendship with Eberhard Bethge.

In this interview he and I had so much fun talking Bonhoeffer our passionate interchange had us moving back and forth between parts of Dietrich’s life and theological conversation partners. His new biography of Bonhoeffer, Strange Glory: A Life of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, is amazing. You should really buy it, read it and enjoy. Also if you are an audiophile the audio book is available as well so no excuses.

Trinity Sunday & the Glory of God #LectioCast

 

LectioCast_Graphic-FinalIt is time for Trinity Sunday! 

Tripp joins Daniel for a discussion of this coming Sunday’s lectionary texts. In the conversation you will discover just what Isaiah’s call story has to do with the Trinity, delve into the Biblical notion of ‘glory’ and explore the invitation to participate in the divine life. Daniel will give a special shout out to youth ministers and Tripp will insist that God has refused to the be God without us.

The texts for the week are Isaiah 6:1-8, Psalm 29, Romans 8:12-17, and John 3:1-17

#LectioCast aims to get your sermon/service prep jumpstarted by homing in on crucial issues and themes in the passages and talking through possible opportunities and issues in preaching the various texts. We’ll aim for Lectionary commentary that is sharp and practical, maybe seasoned with a pinch of snark.
