Book Studies with the
Academy for Faith and Life

Join pastors and staff of Fourth Church in a monthly book study group!

The books are chosen individually by the staff and are presented as a way to more deeply dive into the theological topics and conversations in our world.

Come take part in the discussion! Our books for this spring are as follows. Copies are available for purchase at the Book Nook during Coffee Hour.


Life Together by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
with John M. Buchanan

Life Together
by Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Discussion led by John M. Buchanan, Pastor Emeritus

Wednesdays, April 12 and 19 (2 weeks)
6:30–8:00 p.m. in Anderson Hall

Join John Buchanan as he takes us through Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s days in an underground seminary in Germany during the Nazi years.

In conversation about Life Together, we will see how Bonhoeffer’s personal struggles and discernment provide a solid context from which to flesh out our own individual and collective faiths and ask the question “How are we seeking, individually and collectively, to share our lives in Christ together in this world?”
