In the early twenty-first century, interest in the life and work of Dietrich Bonhoeffer has been increasing significantly. In this environment, how should we understand and interpret Bonhoeffer? Interpreting Bonhoeffer explores the many questions surrounding the complexities of Bonhoeffer’s life, work, and historical context and what they might mean for how we understand and interpret his life and thought now and in the future.

A diverse collection, this may not be the kind of book one reads straight through. But it provides ample evidence why Bonhoeffer’s life story and compelling ‘vision of an ecumenical church for the world’ will continue to influence generations to come.

—Mark S. Brocker, Lutheran Quarterly

With the seventieth anniversary of Bonhoeffer’s death in 2015 and with an undiminished interest in his life and legacy across the theological and ecclesiastical spectrum, it is not surprising that interpretative anthologies such as this one would emerge. The papers in this volume represent, for the most part, what might be termed a ‘postliberal’ reception of Bonhoeffer.
