The Wisdom and Witness of Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Fortress Press
Free sample

At a time when much of the world was either enticed with or entrapped by fascism, Dietrich Bonhoeffer dared to live the morally responsible Christian lite to a most expressive, and in his case, tragic end. His legacy has inspired many, and it demonstrates his life and works to be among the most important of the twentieth century.

Forged during his struggle against Nazism, Bonhoeffer's striking notions of "religionless Christianity" (i.e., costly grace, direct religious engagement with political forces, and his own martyrdom) still speak directly to the situations faced by the Christians -- and Christianity -- of today. His key insights, combined with Floyd's meditations which address meaning and significance for today, are powerfully presented here in fifty key passages grouped into eight areas of Bonhoeffer's concern: church, world, discipleship, politics, love, Christ, creation, and the future.
