Haddon Robinson Preaching Retreat 2019

Chris —  May 14, 2019

I am again privileged to be part of the Haddon Robinson Study Retreat (Map of Participants — Don’t miss Ireland!). This year we are studying the book of Isaiah and our guest lecturer is Tim Mackie of The Bible Project. Watch the Bible Project on Isaiah 1-39 and Isaiah 40-66!

Each year a group of pastors gather for a week of intense study Covenant Harbor Camp near Lake Geneva, WI . Our format is simple. We invite a world-class scholar to teach us on one or more books of the Bible. As we are taught on a technical level, we collaborate to envision how to preach the Scripture we are studying to our congregations.

We were inspired by Dr. Haddon Robinson to begin this retreat. Haddon is one of the most influential teachers of homiletics (preaching) in the English speaking world in the last 100 years. Most of us who are part of this retreat studied under Haddon. All share a commitment to the clear proclamation of God’s Word.

Ten years ago today–on May 9, 2009, I graduated with a Doctor of Ministry degree at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in South Hamilton, MA. The D.Min track was “The Preacher & the Message” under the leadership of the late Dr. Haddon Robinson. This “bonhoefferblog” was part of my D.Min thesis, “The Impact of Dietrich Bonhoeffer on 21st Century Preaching.”

This morning (Saturday) at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in South Hamilton, I sat down with Dr. Haddon Robinson and Dr. Sid Buzzell to defend my thesis on the impact of Dietrich Bonhoeffer on twenty-first century preaching and preachers.

I am thankful to the Lord to pass it.

I am also thankful to everyone who offered feedback of some kind to the bonhoefferblog. Your contribution helped me to complete my thesis.

I plan to continue to add posts to this blog. It has become part of my life and routine.

I have been a fan of Dietrich Bonhoeffer since I was a student at Bethel College in St. Paul, MN back in 1970s. Over the years, the person and works of Dietrich Bonhoeffer have been embraced by evangelicals, liberals, Jews and Catholics. He is also the champion of both the right and the left. He has been described as a “flamingly gay“.

No matter the issue, people from both sides of the issue look to Bonhoeffer for wisdom and guidance. The issue may be same-sex marriage, gun control, abortion, immigration, politics and politicians.

If Dietrich Bonhoeffer lived today, let’s say in America, what side would he take? Back in 2016, would he vote for Hillary or Trump? Voters for both candidates would build a case that Bonhoeffer would certainly see their point of view.

My thesis for my Doctor of Ministry degree focused on the impact of Dietrich Bonhoeffer on twenty-first century preachers, but I am far from being an expert on Bonhoeffer. But I did do enough research then and since then to say that Dietrich Bonhoeffer cannot be boxed in.

He was only 39 years old when he was hung. Imagine if he lived another thirty or forty years and was able to develop his ideas and theology further.

What side would he take? My take is this: Dietrich Bonhoeffer would teach us to pray, read the Bible and meditate on God’s Word. He would also not to place our trust in people (like Presidents) but in God alone. He would tell us to love others who are vastly different than us. I think he would say that even though, we live is an age of outrage, Christians, are to be at their very best and represent Jesus.

Late Gordon-Conwell Professor, Alumnus Cited in “Most Effective Preachers” Poll

May 1, 2018— Two widely recognized preaching experts, the late Dr. Haddon W. Robinson, and Gordon-Conwell alumnus, Tim Keller, have been named in Baylor University’s latest poll of the 12 Most Effective Preachers in the English Speaking World.

Dr. Robinson, who died in 2017, served the seminary for 26 years as the Harold John Ockenga Distinguished Professor of Preaching, was Senior Director of the Doctor of Ministry Program and Interim President from 2007 to 2008.

He was also named in an earlier Baylor University poll of most effective preachers, as well as Christianity Today’s “25 Most Influential Preachers of the Past 50 Years” and Preaching magazine’s 2010 list of the “25 Most Influential Preachers of the Past 25 Years.”

Keller, who received a Master of Divinity degree from the seminary in 1975, was the founding pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Manhattan, NY, and is Chairman of Redeemer City to City, a ministry that plants churches in New York and other global cities.
