Brant Himes discusses Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s understanding of discipleship and how that understanding not only shaped the way he trained pastors, but also led him to participate in a conspiracy against Adolf Hitler—a conspiracy that ultimately failed and led to his execution.
Show Notes

Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s life is an incredibly powerful story. The son of a German psychiatrist in an aristocratic family back in the early 20th century, Bonhoeffer made the unlikely decision to study theology. In so doing, Bonhoeffer encountered a Jesus who revolutionized his life would not let go of him.

In this episode of Spiritual Life and Leadership, we speak once again with Brant Himes, author of For a Better Worldliness: Abraham Kuyper, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, and Discipleship for the Common Good.

Brant and I talk about Bonhoeffer’s understanding of discipleship and how that understanding not only shaped the way he trained pastors, but also led him to participate in a conspiracy against Adolf Hitler—a conspiracy that ultimately failed and led to his execution.
