One of the best known Christians of the twentieth century, Dietrich Bonhoeffer is admired as a theologian for his unparalleled independence of mind, creativity and brilliance by liberals and conservatives alike. His death at the hands of the Nazis is an extraordinary tale of courage and Christian discipleship. However, Bonhoeffer was also a serious theologian who, while indebted to the liberal tradition of the University of Berlin, was also influenced by the new thinking of Karl Barth that challenged the consensus. Plant has written a critical exploration of Bonhoeffer's writings that illuminates his ethical theology, showing that what linked all his work was the attempt to listen to God's word in, to, and for the secular world.
Dr. Stephen Plant is a Methodist Minister. He is senior tutor at Wesley House and a senior member of St Edmund's College, Cambridge. He teaches in the Cambridge Theological Federation and an affiliated lecturer in the Divinity Faculty of Cambridge University.

Editorial Reviews

"There is much in here for reflection and consideration. But it is an accessible book. It can be read by those with little knowledge of Bonhoeffer beyond 'he is important' is a book which repays careful reading and consideration." -Expository Times, Ruth Gouldbourne, Bristol Baptist College
