Host Jen Pollock Michel is joined by first-time podcast guest Laura Fabrycky and ERB editor Chris Smith for a rich and impassioned conversation about the life of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, political theology, and the role of reading in a contentious political culture.

Her book, Keys to Bonhoeffer’s Haus: Exploring the World and Wisdom of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, is a historically grounded memoir of her experience as a volunteer guide at the Bonhoeffer-Haus in Berlin.
