“The annual Bonhoeffer conference continues to be an important contributor to ongoing interest in the theology of Dietrich Bonhoeffer as well as providing a focus generally on the importance of theology in grappling with worldly issues, personal and communal. In both respects, Bonhoeffer continues to be our inspiration.”

Emeritus Professor Terry Lovat, Conference Chair
