London 1933-1935 by Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Book Description

Dietrich Bonhoeffer's pastoral sojourn in England from October 1933 to April of 1935, which he initially viewed as a withdrawal from the church clashes in Germany, marked instead a new phase in his intensive participation in that struggle. This enlightening volume provides an almost daily documentation of his deepening engagement against the placid backdrop of his two London pastorates.Detailing Bonhoeffer's extensive contacts with German expatriates, ecumenical partners and allies, and friends and family, "London: 1933-1935" impressively records both Bonhoeffer's involvement in the rapidly developing clash with the deutsche Christen and the means by which he pursued it. The bulk of the material consists of his wide correspondence but also includes records and minutes of his congregational meetings, excerpts from the diaries of Bonhoeffer's friend and London colleague Julius Rieger, reports from international conferences from 1934, and more than twenty sermons he preached to his London congregations. The wealth of this material, says editor Keith Clements, allows us to experience a dramatic slice of this history and see the many and complex facets of Dietrich Bonhoeffer's personality.

Books By Author Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Ethics by Dietrich Bonhoeffer Ethics, Paperback (November 2015)

Ethics is the culmination of Dietrich Bonhoeffer's theological and personal odyssey. Though caught up in the vortex of momentous forces in the Nazi period, Bonhoeffer systematically envisioned a radically Christocentric, incarnational ethic for a postwar world, purposefully recasting Christians' relation to history, politics, and public life.

Discipleship by Dietrich Bonhoeffer Discipleship, Paperback (November 2015)

Discipleship is a classic exposition of what it means to follow Christ in a modern world beset by a dangerous and criminal government. Dietrich Bonhoeffer's life ended in martyrdom on April 9, 1945. This edition features material and an introduction to clarify the theological meaning and social context of this attempt to resist the Nazi ideology.

Letters and Papers from Prison by Dietrich Bonhoeffer Letters and Papers from Prison, Paperback (November 2015)

Despite Dietrich Bonhoeffer's earlier theological achievements and writings, it was his correspondence from prison that electrified the postwar world. The materials gathered and selected by his friend Eberhard Bethge in Letters and Papers from Prison brought Bonhoeffer to a wide and appreciative readership, especially in North America.
