Top Highlights

“Bonhoeffer was highly unusual in his involvement in the conspiracy.” (Page xvi)

“Instead, according to Bonhoeffer, Christ’s being ‘for us’ is not a fact about him that is ‘additional’ to his being ‘true God and true man’. Christ’s ‘being for us’ is the very essence of his divinity and humanity and their unity. Jesus is ‘the incarnate one, the unveiled image of God’ (C 109). It is precisely in his humanity that Jesus glorifies and reveals God.” (Page 28)

“But according to the biblical and Reformation faith, truth and salvation lie outside of our selves, in the Christ who is beyond ourselves (extra nos) yet also ‘for us’ (pro nobis) in his grace.” (Page 27)

“But it then has to be asked whether Bonhoeffer himself would have become the later radical except on the basis of his earlier career of life and thought.” (Page xix)

“The earth remains our mother, just as God remains our father, and only those who remain true to the mother are placed by her into the father’s arms.” (Page 35)

A reliable and readable guide to Bonhoeffer’s legacy for a new generation of students and a much wider circle of readers.
