Bonhoeffer’s Black Jesus

By: Geoffrey Holsclaw

Have we returned the favor and created God in our image?

In Harlem, Dietrich Bonhoeffer was confronted with the reality that German Christians had fashioned Jesus in their own image, leading to the tragic rise of Hitler. What can we learn from this today?

David Fitch and Geoff Holsclaw talk about Bonhoeffer’s Black Jesus, a book by Reggie L. Williams. They discuss two pitfalls of the German Church and how they might affect us now.
