 Many North American Christians see themselves as heirs of the Reformation legacy, for good and ill. But is such a perception accurate? Dr. David S. Robinson presents Dietrich Bonhoeffer's 1939 essay 'Protestantism without Reformation,' particularly his identification of the social differences that mark a 'nation of refugees.' The essay offers astute observations "Bonhoeffer has been called a 'theological Tocqueville'" It also appeals for both rooted historical consciousness and global theological exchange, critical components to a vibrant church 'confession' for the twenty-first century.
