“Responding to Islam: Lessons from Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Karl Barth, and Bishop George Bell”

January 27, 2012:  Patrick Sookhdeo

Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Karl Barth. Bishop George Bell. Dismissed, derided, and in one case even martyred, each of these Christian leaders took a stand against the threat of Nazism.  Today, a similar threat faces Christians in the US, across Europe, and much more dramatically throughout the Muslim world. Radical Islam’s jihadist ideology does not peacefully coexist with Christianity. And Christian leaders–both political and pastoral–should know more about the threats they face.
