Letters and Papers From Prison (New Greatly Enlarged Edition)

Dietrich Bonhoeffer

$34.99

Paperback
"Bonhoeffer is teaching a few Protestants what it means to say 'yes' to the 20th century and still somehow stay recognizablly Protestant. A look at a few of his seminal ideas will make this clear.

- Publisher One of the great classics of prison literature, Letters and Papers from Prison effectively serves as the last will and testament of the Lutheran theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Dietrich Bonhoeffer was a young German pastor who was executed by the Nazis in 1945 for his part in the "officers' plot" to assassinate Adolf Hitler. 

      This expanded version of Letters and Papers from Prison shifts the emphasis of earlier editions of Bonhoeffer's theological reflections to the private sphere of his life. His letters appear in greater detail and show his daily concerns. Letters from Bonhoeffer's parents, siblings, and other relatives have also been added, in addition to previously inaccessible letters and legal papers referring to his trial.

     Acute and subtle, warm and perceptive, yet also profoundly moving, the documents collectively tell a very human story of loss, of courage, and of hope. Bonhoeffer's story seems as vitally relevant, as politically prophetic, and as theologically significant today, as it did yesterday.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Dietrich Bonhoeffer (1906-1945) was a German Lutheran pastor, theologian (he received his doctorate in theology at the age of only 21), participant in the German Resistance movement against Nazism, and a founding member of the Confessing Church. He was involved in plots planned by members of the Abwehr (the German Military Intelligence Office) to assassinate Adolf Hitler.

He was arrested in March 1943, imprisoned, and eventually hanged just before the end of the World War II in Europe.

Some of his selected published works include Creation and Fall: A Theological Exposition of Genesis 1-3; Life Together; The Cost of Discipleship; Ethics; Christ the Center and Letters and Papers from Prison.
