“We forget…Before Hitler became our absolute fetish of evil, he was in fact just another politician. Before Hitler was Hitler, that is, he was simply Adolf, the bumbling idiot that the German aristocracy believed they could manage and control if they allowed him to become Chancellor. Likewise, people generations from now will look back upon us and wonder what moral judgments they would’ve made had they been in our shoes these past four plus years.”

For our episode this week- a week that saw seditious rioters, seduced by propaganda and a lie, storm the Capitol building in Washington DC and threaten our liberal, constitutional order, we’re making available the first session of our online class with Dr. Jeffrey Pugh, Bonhoeffer for Troubled Times.

An ordained Elder in the United Methodist Church, Jeffrey was the Maude Sharpe Powell Professor of Religious Studies at Elon University. Among other books, he’s the author of Religionless Christianity: Dietrich Bonhoeffer for Troubled Times.
