Abstract:

What caused Dietrich Bonhoeffer-- a well-educated and philosophical pastor from Berlin-- to risk his reputation, his freedom, and finally his life to stand with others against the brutality of the Nazis? In this special collection of his writings, Bonhoeffer reveals his thoughts and struggles as he reflects on the Bible. This unique collection includes excerpts from Bonhoeffer's letters, meditations, expositions, sermons, lectures, and seminar papers-- with topics stretching from his thematic study of the historical critical method to his study of selected portions of Psalms 119, which he regarded "as the crown of theological life." Bonhoeffer's statements about the Bible-- and his struggle with those statements-- remain remarkably relevant today for individuals and churches, for Christians and non-Christians. He still challenges us to decide "whether we are willing to trust the word of the Bible or not."--Back of the book.
