Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Although Christians on the Right and on the Left have enjoyed a healthy course of influence in Washington over the last fifty years, Christianity has not always been afforded this privilege. Indeed, Bonhoeffer argues that the way of Jesus, will be a narrow way on the margins that comes with its own significant cost — an important message for us to remember in the era of Trump.

Dean Stroud, Ed. 


Although it is premature to draw parallels between Trump and Hitler, there are many alarming similarities. These sermons that were preaching in Hitler’s Germany collectively give us a solid imagination for what a Confessing Church that resists the overwhelming presence of evil might look like.

Stanley Hauerwas and Romand Coles

This compelling conversation between Hauerwas and Coles, offers one of the most compelling visions of the political contours of Christian faithfulness. “Hauerwas and Coles call us to a revolutionary politics of wild patience that seeks transformation through attentive practices of listening, relationship-building, and a careful tending to places, common goods, and diverse possibilities for flourishing.”
