Bonhoeffer Blog Conference Update

I’m pleased to announce that all slots have now been filled for the upcoming Bonhoeffer Blog Conference. I am also especially pleased to report that internationally-known Bonhoeffer scholar Geffrey B. Kelly will be offering a concluding reflection and response to the entire conference. Professor Kelly is the author such books as Liberating Faith: Bonhoeffer’s Message for Today, The Cost of Moral Leadership (With F. Burton Nelson), and the forthcoming Reading Bonhoeffer: A Guide to his Spiritual Classics and Selected Writings on Peace (From Cascade Books). He has also been instrumental in the editing and translation of the Dietrich Bonhoeffer Works series, and is active in the International Dietrich Bonhoeffer Society. I am definitely excited about his participation in the upcoming conference.

Here is the list of participants with their paper titles:

  • Day 1: Introduction to the Conference by Halden
  • Day 2: ‘Christ my Conscience’: Bonhoeffer on Identity, Moral Integrity, and Christian Community by Chris Green
  • Day 3: ‘Being Made in Human Likeness’: ‘Ethics as Formation’ and Von Balthasar’s Concrete Universal by Eric Meyer
  • Day 4: Salvation as Humanification: Bonhoeffer’s Ethical Soteriology by Adam McInturf
  • Day 5: Bonhoeffer and Levinas (Title TBA) by Eric Roorback
  • Day 6: The Ethics of Justification: Bonhoeffer and Jüngel on the Implications of the Doctrine of Justification for Christian Ethics by D.W. Congdon
  • Day 7: Final Reflections and Response to Conference by Geffrey B. Kelly
We are still in need of respondents to the various plenary papers that are set to be presented. So far we only have one volunteered for David Congdon’s paper. If you are interested in responding to the other, please let me know. Responses should be 500-750 words and offer constructive engagement with the plenary in question. If you wish to write a response, please let me know, either by email at halden-at-wipfandstock-dot-com or leave a comment on this post.

    Hi all,

    Not sure if anyone has volunteer for this yet or not but I would be happy to respond to Eric Roorback’s post on Bonhoeffer and Levinas.

    Peace,
    Mike.
