Patrick is a theologian, author and professor who has plenty to say about religion-less Christianity, truth and the life of Dietrich Bonhoeffer. If the idea of religion-less Christianity or ethics or pacifism interests you then there is plenty here for further reflection.

He is the author of Being Human, Being Church: The Significance of Theological Anthropology for Ecclesiology (Paternoster, forthcoming) and several peer-reviewed articles, including two on Dietrich Bonhoeffer.
