The Bonhoeffer Reader
Edited by Clifford J. Green and Michael P. DeJonge
"This outstanding compendium of Bonhoeffer's writings is unmatched in scope and depth ... it will introduce Bonhoeffer to a new generation for years to come."
—George Hunsinger, Princeton Theological Seminary
This new collection of theological writings offers a way to engage the whole Bonhoeffer and to think critically, creatively, and constructively about the meaning of Christian faith today.
The early material in the collection raises an interesting puzzle for the reader to solve—what's the relationship between Bonhoeffer the academic theologian and the Bonhoeffer we know as hero, martyr, pastor?
"There are few books of which one can truly say 'this should be in the library of every theologian and preacher.' The Bonhoeffer Reader is such a book."—Stephen Plant, University of Cambridge

It strikes me that Bonhoeffer’s life itself testifies that God can use our anxiety-riddled middle places to point toward the God who is beginning and end.
Bruce G. Epperly
The healing of the world requires our participation; there is no preordained end of history or end-time goal or apocalypse, but rather an ongoing process which requires our positive action for God’s vision to be embodied.
