confessing church Bonhoeffer, Martin Niemöller, Karl Barth and others established the Confessing Church. Bonhoeffer played a large role in the confessing church. He was originally a Lutheran but he became frustrated with "liberal theology" after having discussions with Karl Barth, an eminent theologian. Barth who believed that "liberal theology" is (understood as emphasizing personal experience and societal development) minimized Scripture, reducing it to a mere textbook of principles while sanctioning the adoration of human culture. Barth and Bonhoeffer often debated rationalist. Bonhoeffer and Barth became main figures of the "neo-orthodox" movement mid-20th century in German- and English-speaking Protestantism. In August 1933, he co-authored the Bethel Confession with Hermann Sasse and others. Between 1933 and 1935, he served as pastor of two German-speaking Protestant churches in London: St. Paul's and Sydenham. Bonhoeffer lectured on theology in Berlin and wrote several books.
