Film - "Theologians Under Hitler"

KMA Community Event at COS - "Theologians Under Hitler"

Members of the Knoxville Ministerial Association invite congregation members, colleagues, sister organizations and community leaders to a special community event featuring filmmaker Steve Martin and his provocative documentary, "Theologians Under Hitler." It is hoped that many congregations will use the film and related study resources for further reflection on the nature of faith as it relates to politics (e.g., during Lent or in the Spring in conjunction with Holocaust Remembrance Day). This Public Interfaith Forum: “Theologians Under Hitler”, will take place at Church of the Savior, THIS Tuesday January 23, at 7 PM and will include a conversation with Steve Martin and local religious leaders, the Rev. Dr. Larry Fields of Central Baptist Church in Bearden and Rev. Dixie Petrey, Chaplain of Shannondale - Maryville. The film explores the role key Christian theologians and church leaders played in giving legitimacy to the Nazi regime. The documentary asks us to reflect on the question “Can religion become evil?” It offers sobering lessons about the dangers of politicizing religion that can be sobering across the liberal to conservative spectrum.
