I have added a sub-page devoted to Bonhoeffer Sources. Check it out.
Chrisendom has this link to a Christival festival this summer. On December 11, 2007, Chris also provided links to “two great online videos” in German: One a debate over faith vs. atheism, the other featuring Hans Küng.
“The Bonhoefferian” is devoted to Bonhoeffer. In contains some good reviews and articles, including a link to an excellent article “Ten Theses on Dietrich Bonhoeffer: Christian, Theologian, Martyr” in Faith and Theology and notice of an International Conference on Bonhoeffer in Prague, July, 22-27, 2008.
Der Spiegel is one of Germany’s leading news magazines, with sections on Politics, News, Sports, Culture, and so forth. It is available free online. I clicked on “Kultur” and saw a streaming video add for Jodi Fosters new movie, “Fremde in Dir.” The photos can help with vocabulary recognition.
The Berliner Morgenpost is also online, and also has lots of photographs.
Google Books has made Heinrich von Kleist’s classic novel, published in 1810, Michael Kohlhaas (see Lesestücke, 1a) available in digitized form (with an English introduction and the German text in Gothic type) here. Martin Luther makes an appearance in the novel. Evidently this is based on history; there are references in Luther’s letters to Kohlhaas. A brief introduction to Kleist and the novel is available at the Literary Encyclopedia.
Wright State University’s Germanic Studies Association has an online journal community. You have to apply for membership and be approved to see what’s available on the site, which I have not done yet, but there are some interesting links on the front page, including a downloadable German dictionary.
Münsteraner Forum fur Theologie und Kirche is a complete online journal.
In 2006, Aldo Parmegianni interviewed Jürgen Moltmann on his 80th birthday, for Radio Vatikan. The interview sums up the major themes of Moltmann’s life work. Both the text and the audio (Real Audio) are available. I have posted some vocabulary helps, beginning here.
BibelTV has more recently done a 9-minute interview with Professor Moltmann. The audio and video quality are excellent.
A new web site celebrates the upcoming 500th anniversary of the birth of Jean Calvin. Calvin 09 gives the options of English, French, Deutsch, or Spanish. Click on “Actio” and you can download, among other writings, the Institutes in French or English.
Wieland Willker is a chemist in Bremen, who is a serious amateur NT scholar and textual critic. His web site includes a bibliography of books in German on NT Greek, and a Greek-German NT vocabulary list. His site also includes a massive textual commentary in English on the GNT.
This page has the following sub pages.
