Dietrich Bonhoeffer: Discipleship and Culturally Accommodated Christianity
In the minds of many scholars, Christian church attendance in the United States frequently does not accord with the actions of discipleship that Scripture mandates. Christianity is reflective of culture instead of the kind of belief and obedience that those in the Bible represent. This thesis discusses Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s understanding of biblical discipleship that is in contrast with the idea of a culturally accommodated Christianity. It then examines Bonhoeffer’s relevant writings and teachings for insights that can assist modern Christians as they pursue a faithful discipleship in their respective circumstances.
