The Bonhoeffer Phenomenon Book Review:

Stephen Haynes's provocative study articulates the many motives and agendas that readers and scholars have brought to their study of Bonhoeffer, making it difficult to assess objectively the relationship of his political and religious commitments, the real meaning of his theology, and his words and actions on behalf of Jews. Reading Haynes's book helps us learn not only what Bonhoeffer has to teach us but also what it is we most desire to learn.

Bonhoeffer s Intellectual Formation Book Review:

In spite of the plethora of Bonhoeffer studies there is a large lacuna regarding studies that have addressed Bonhoeffer's intellectual grounding in a thorough, comprehensive and methodical manner. Scholarly attention to this important subject matter has indeed been scarce. However, without an attempt to examine, trace, and weigh these influences in Bonhoeffer's theological formation it is hardly possible to gain a comprehensive and complete understanding of his thought. In the studies, the different authors seek to address the decisive questions and issues in this regard.As such, the essays collected in this volume have the one focal point and common scope in the thought of Dietrich Bonhoeffer. In each of the essays, the authors discuss one or two philosophers or theologians and demonstrate how specific ideas penetrated and shaped Bonhoeffer's intellectual formation. These various studies converge on the thought of Bonhoeffer as a whole in such a way as to illuminate the growth and maturation of his own intellect vis-a-vis the philosophical and theological ideas articulated in the thinkers discussed in the essays. Put differently, the objective of the essays is to open up the intellectual window of Bonhoeffer's thought, as it were, and thereby allow more light to fall on the structure, extension and formation of that thought.

Mysteries in the Theology of Dietrich Bonhoeffer Book Review:

A critical confrontation of Dietrich Bonhoeffer's theology with current, alien problems. In an unconventional way, the authors of this volume confront Dietrich Bonhoeffer's theology with current issues and issues, such as intercultural understanding, ecology, globalization, the return of religion and the function of theological ethics in secular society. Since these problems were mostly foreign to Bonhoeffer, there is a critical reading of his work and an unprejudiced discussion of the relevance of his thinking to the present. This creates a new, attractively alienating perspective on Bonhoeffer's work. The concept of mystery, which is important to Bonhoeffer's thinking, covers the individual considerations.

The Wisdom and Witness of Dietrich Bonhoeffer Book Review:

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.

The Bonhoeffer Legacy Book Review:

"Stephen Haynes, whose volume The Bonhoeffer Phenomenon probed the many conflicting ways in which Bonhoeffer has been understood by Christians for their own uses, now brings new clarity to the vexed and controversial question of Bonhoeffer's relationship to Jews and the Jewish people. Haynes's text analyzes the historical record and Bonhoeffer's maturing theology and offers an analysis of Bonhoeffer himself, his work, and his legacy for a generation learning from the Holocaust."--BOOK JACKET.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer Book Review:

"Pastor, theologian, resister, Dietrich Bonhoeffer (1906-45) has been an influential theologian and inspiration for more than 60 years. This unique pictorial account of Bonhoeffer's life, family, and friends, and of the Germany in which he lived and died, is now available in a new edition with added photographs and a new design." "With more than 200 photos - including many portraits of Bonhoeffer's ancestors, family gatherings, press photos of contemporary events, maps, postcards, and newspaper accounts, posters, book jackets - this book gives the reader a real sense of Bonhoeffer's family context and the decisive times in which he lived and strove." "The twelve chapters in this volume recapture distinct periods in Bonhoeffer's life, setting events in his family against the tumultuous events in church, state, and the international scene. The brief accompanying texts provide essential information, but on the whole the pictures are allowed to speak for themselves. For those who know Bonhoeffer through his writings or even films about him, this centenary edition will introduce Bonhoeffer the man and the circle of family and friends who together with him faced fateful choices."--BOOK JACKET.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer Book Review:

Bonhoeffer's theological brilliance, committed discipleship, ecumenical insight and courageous participation in the struggle against Nazism have profoundly shaped contemporary Christian understanding and action. Although his early death at the hands of the Gestapo prevented him from providing us with a full and systematic theology, his writings are remarkably extensive and have become increasingly influential. This volume concentrates on the key texts and ideas in Bonhoeffer's thought. It presents the essential Bonhoeffer for students and the general reader. John de Gruchy's introductory essay and notes on the selected texts set Bonhoeffer in his historical context, chart the development of his thought and indicate the significance of his theology in the development of Christian theology as a whole. Substantial selections from Bonhoeffer's work illustrate key themes:His theological foundations Christology and reality Confessing Christ concretely The life of free responsibility Christ in a world come of age

The Young Bonhoeffer Book Review:

"Volume 11 in the sixteen-volume Dietrich Bonhoeffer Works English Edition, Ecumenical, Academic, and Pastoral Work: 1931-1932, provides a comprehensive translation of Bonhoeffer's important writings from 1931 to 1932, with extensive commentary about their historical context and theological significance. This volume covers the significant period of Bonhoeffer's entry into the international ecumenical world and the final months before the beginning of the National Socialist dictatorship. It begins with Bonhoeffer's return to Berlin in June 1931 after his year of study in the United States. In the crucial period that followed, Bonhoeffer continued his preparations for the ministry, began teaching at Berlin University, and became active at international ecumenical meetings. His letters and lectures, however, also document the economic and political turbulence on the European and world stage, and Bonhoeffer directly addresses the growing threat of the Nazi movement and what it portends not only for Germany, but for the world. Several of the documents in this volume, particularly the student notes of his university lecture on "The Nature of the Church" and his lectures on Christian ethics, give important insights into his theology at this point. His ecumenical lectures and reports are significant documents for understanding the ecumenical debates of this period"--Publisher description.

Night and silence. Only footsteps and shouts of the guards. Do you not hear it in this silenced house, shaking, breaking, and collapsing, as hundreds kindle the glowing ember of their hearts?

Dietrich Bonhoeffer's Prison Poems is the stirring, deeply personal manifesto of one of the twentieth century's best-known Christian writers and thinkers, whose short life and martyr's death raised a standard of faith that challenges, beckons, and guides us today.

Reclaiming Dietrich Bonhoeffer Book Review:

In this book, Marsh offers a new way of reading the theology of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a Christian theologian who was executed for his role in the resistance against Hitler and the Nazis. Focusing on Bonhoeffer's substantial philosophical interests, Marsh examines his work in the context of the German philosophical tradition, from Kant through Hegel to Heidegger. Marsh argues that Bonhoeffer's description of human identity offers a compelling alternative to post-Kantian conceptions of selfhood. In addition, he shows that Bonhoeffer, while working within the boundaries of Barth's theology, provides both a critique and redescription of the tradition of transcendental subjectivity. This fresh look at Bonhoeffer's thought will provoke much discussion in the theological academy and the church, as well as in broader forums of intellectual life.
