Life Together, originally written by Dietrich Bonhoeffer as a reflection and rule of life during his time as leader of the illegal seminary of the Confessing Church in Finkenwalde (Eastern Prussia) in the 1930s, is one of the classic texts of twentieth-century spirituality. Since its first publication in German in 1939, it has influenced Christian individuals can communities in their thinking of what it means to live a life before God. First published by SCM Press in 1954, it is now reissued with a Foreward by Samuel Wells.
