Description - Reading Bonhoeffer by Geffrey B. Kelly

The German theologian Dorothee Soelle once wrote that 'Dietrich Bonhoeffer is the one German theologian who will lead us into the third millennium'. Now as we near the end of the first decade of this third millennium, Bonhoeffer continues to inspire new generations of those who have recognised in him a spiritual guide in their actions on behalf of peace and social justice. The author, Geffrey Kelly, Bonhoeffer scholar and past president of the International Bonhoeffer Society, provides a critical analysis and reading guide to two of Bonhoeffer's classic spiritual texts. Reading Bonhoeffer offers a running commentary of each segment of these popular texts along with discussion questions suitable for the university and seminary classroom as well as for parish adult education programs using these two books. In the final section of the book, Dr Kelly has excerpted and analysed three significant texts by Bonhoeffer on the need for world peace against the rising militarism and continued glorification of war in Germany and other European nations.
