Benefits of Joining

When you become an IBS-ELS member, you join scholars, clergy, and lay people from the United States, Canada, South Africa, the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, and beyond, all dedicated to the study of Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Your participation strengthens the field, advances the invaluable work of the community, and enriches the conversation about Bonhoeffer’s life and legacy. As a member, you receive access to the latest scholarship, promotion of your own accomplishments through our official channels, and invitations to members-only events.


The English Language Section is dedicated to advancing the theology and legacy of German pastor-theologian and Nazi resister, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, in the academy, church, and world, and has been on the forefront of this work for the last fifty years.
