“Action springs not from thought, but from a readiness for responsibility.”

“We are not to simply bandage the wounds of victims beneath the wheels of injustice, we are to drive a spoke into the wheel itself.”

“We must learn to regard people less in the light of what they do or omit to do, and more in the light of what they suffer.”

Mission

The Dietrich Bonhoeffer Institute (TDBI) is a non-profit charitable and educational institution dedicated to applying the theological and ethical insights of this brilliant World War II-era Protestant church leader, Nazi resister, and moral philosopher to the social crises of our time. TDBI sponsors lectures, symposia, and discussion forums and publishes relevant material online and in books, opinion papers, and pamphlets.

Our Vision

We settle for nothing less than a just society infused with collaboration and equity. This vision brings together Evangelicals (both those on the left and right politically) and the broader Christian faith community on a biblically sound and Bonhoeffer-styled treatment (versus partisan) of the pressing issues of the culture.
