In January 2020, the 13th International Bonhoeffer Congress was hosted by the Faculty of Theology and the Beyers Naudé Center for Public Theology of Stellenbosch University, South Africa, in partnership with the Department of Religion and Theology of the University of the Western Cape. This congress took as its theme the question, “How is the coming generation to go on living?” – a question drawn from Bonhoeffer’s remarkable text, “An Account at the Turn of the Year 1942-1943” (written as a Christmas gift for his friends and co-conspirators Eberhard Bethge, Hans von Dohnanyi, and Hans Oster).
