This volume is arguably the best introduction to the theological writings of Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Excerpts are taken from the completed works of Bonhoeffer, Dietrich Bonhoeffer Works, in English in 16 volumes plus an index published by Fortress Press.
Nouwen, known for his writings on spirituality, was committed to the peacemaking of Jesus and was able to make the connection between the inward journey of spirituality and the outward journey of peacemaking and care for the marginalized. Nouwen wrote this book in the 1980s, and part of it appeared in a church journal. Now the complete book appears for the first time.
