Are We Still Any Use? Dietrich Bonhoeffer and the Church Today

A panel of theologians discuss the

coincide with the republication of his Life Together (with a foreword by Sam Wells)
and his Cost of Discipleship (with a foreword by Stephen Plant), St Martin-in-the-Fields and SCM Press host a panel discussion reflecting on his significance and the questions he raises for the church today.

Revd Dr Stephen Plant, Dean and Runcie Fellow, Trinity Hall, Cambridge
Dr Jane Williams, Assistant Dean and Lecturer in Systematic Theology,
St Mellitus College, London
