Dietrich Bonhoeffer (1906-1945), a German pastor and scholar, played a central role in the Confessing Church during the Nazi period and became one of the most influential theologians of the twentieth century. He studied in Berlin and at Union Theological Seminary in New York City and wrote several books ready widely in German and English. Active in the German resistance movement, Bonhoeffer traveled extensively while working for the Abwehr, the German counter-intelligence organization. His role in a plot to assassinate Adolf Hitler ultimately cost him his life: he was hanged by the Gestapo on April 9, 1945. His theology and personal witness continue to challenge Christians of all denominations. Fortress Press is the publisher of Dietrich Bonhoeffer Works, a series of critical English editions of Bonhoeffer's writings (ultimately sixteen volumes), and many other related resources.
