Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s Letters and Papers from Prison, by Martin E. Marty

Though some of his admirers may find it difficult to believe now, Dietrich Bonhoeffer was not widely known in the years immediately following World War II, save perhaps as one of a band of courageous pastors and theologians in Germany who resisted the Nazi regime of Adolf Hitler.


Hijacking Bonhoeffer

Given the tendency of evangelicals and liberals to focus on different parts of Bonhoeffer's theology and witness, the challenge is to transcend polarization. But for Metaxas, polarization is a structural motif: his mission is to reclaim the true Bonhoeffer from "liberals" who have "hijacked" him.
