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.
