New Biblical Theology Podcast! Bonhoeffer as Exegete?

Would Dietrich Bonhoeffer be comfortable signing the Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy? To quote the man himself, “The theory of verbal plenary inspiration will not do.” Isn’t that confusing? He has such a high view of the authority of the Bible. Bonhoeffer left German liberalism and combated theological and political error all around him. He was a gifted theologian. But how, if he did not hold to inerrancy, can students, authors, and theologians faithfully interact with his works and especially his exegesis in a faithful manner today?

In this episode of Credo’s The Biblical Theology Podcast, Devin Maddox and Sam Bierig drill down through the layers of the life, work, and exegesis of Dietrich Bonhoeffer.
