Engaging Bonhoeffer : The Impact and Influence of Bonhoeffer's Life and Thought Hardback
Dietrich Bonhoeffer was one of the most important thinkers of the twentieth century.
His Life Together and Discipleship are considered to be spiritual classics, and few theological works have made as much of an impact as Letters and Papers from Prison upon publication.
But who actually is this Bonhoeffer? Do we really know him? ln this magisterial collection, leading international scholars discuss and critically interact with the ways in which a variety of significant figures have engaged with Bonhoeffer's thought since his death.
The aim of the volume is threefold: firstly, to demonstrate the profound and ongoing influence of Bonhoeffer on thinkers of many kinds; secondly, to help those interested in gaining a greater understanding of these other figures and movements; and thirdly, to offer invaluable insights into how Bonhoeffer might be interpreted.
The aim of the project is not simply to focus on "influence" but rather "engagement," to demonstrate the importance of Bonhoeffer across twentieth-century thought.
