A review of God Is in the Manger

December 16, 2010

This collection of Dietrich Bonhoef­fer's writings for Advent, Christmas and Epiphany are drawn from his sermons, letters and other writings. There's a poignancy to these daily readings, since many come from his prison writings prior to his execution. As the editor notes, typical Bonhoeffer themes are explored: "that Christ expresses strength best through weakness, that faith is more important than the beguiling trappings of religion, and that God is often heard most clearly by those in poverty and distress."
