Dietrich Bonhoeffer Works, vol. 5: Life Together and Prayerbook of the Bible

Format: Digital
ISBN: 9780800683054 ratings


The stimulus for the writing of Life Together was the closing of the preacher’s seminary at Finkenwalde. The treatise contains Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s thoughts about the nature of Christian community based on the common life that he and his seminarians experienced at the seminary and in the “Brother’s House” there. Bonhoeffer completed the writing of Life Together in 1938.

Prayerbook of the Bible is a classic of Christian spirituality. In this theological interpretation of the Psalms, Bonhoeffer describes the moods of an individual’s relationship with God and also the turns of love and heartbreak, of joy and sorrow, that are themselves the Christian community’s path to God.
