review Widerstand und Ergebung Briefe und Aufzeichnungen aus der Haft Widerstand und Ergebung Briefe und Aufzeichnungen aus der Haft characters ↠ 4 Inaccessible letters and legal papers referring to his trial      Acute and subtle warm and perceptive yet also profoundly moving the documents collectively tell a very human story of loss of courage and of hope Bonhoeffer’s story seems as vitally relevant as politically prophetic and as theologically significant today as it did yesterd. I cannot recommend this edition given the other ones that are available but I happened to have it Context is needed not least because Bonhoeffer was playing a role in many of his letters for the censors and they read as being pretty naive and over cheerful I finally started reading the relevant parts of Bonhoeffer Pastor Martyr Prophet Spy beside it and that helped a lotWhat made B such a great man He was brilliant and came from a great family and had great opportunities But I think one of the biggest factors that made him the man he was was his discipline He was very disciplined about meditating on the Bible and prayer though not in a fundamentalist way Further as he wrote in his poem Stations on the Road to Freedom discipline is essential to freedom including the ability to act and do the right thing Reading this book even knowing the ending in advance is sad It s sad that we lost such a man to the insanity of Nazi Germany But B believed in a greater life than the one that he was living and he hoped in that in very difficult circumstances This is the end For me the beginning of life

From April 1943 to April 1945 Dietrich Bonhoeffer was a prisoner of the Gestapo Suspected of participating in a plot against Hitler he was eventually executed in the closing days of World War II This book is a collection of letters he wrote from prison to his family his fiancee Maria and his dearest friend EberhardBonhoeffer was in his late 30s when he was arrested He was a Lutheran theologian who had publicly uestioned the rise of fascism and anti Semitism in Germany and was systematically silenced by Hitler s government unable finally to publish any of his writings or to preach in any pulpit Along with other members of his family Bonhoeffer secretly participated in an effort led by officers of Army Intelligence to undermine the war effort Attempting to build a case against him the Gestapo kept him a prisoner awaiting trial Incriminating evidence did not emerge until after the July 1944 attempt on Hitler s life And at this point the letters stop as Bonhoeffer was transported to another prison and eventually to a series of concentration campsThe letters in this volume describe in detail the routines of prison life And they offer a glimpse of life lived by ordinary civilians during months of aerial bombardments as the fabric of daily life slowly crumbles They also reveal the thoughts and emotions of a man whose faith in God and trust in survival are put to the severest test While he is remembered by those who knew him in his last months as a fiercely brave courageous and selfless man we see in the letters his inner turmoil his fear loneliness and sense of isolation in a world his theology never imaginedIncluded in the collection are polite and cheerful love letters to the young Maria von Wedemeyer to whom he has proposed marriage And deeply moving still are his heart felt letters to Eberhard Bethge a fellow clergyman and dearly loved friend It was Bethge many years later who collected these letters and published them he has also written an extensive biography of Bonhoeffer The letters to Maria von Wedemeyer have been published separately as Love Letters from Cell 92 A collection of Bethge s essays on Dietrich Bonhoeffer was publisehd in 1995 under the title Friendship and Resistance They portray Bonhoeffer s friendship with Bethge and describe how the prison letters between them survivedBonhoeffer s life should have been that of a theologian much respected in his own time who in a large body of work advanced an understanding of God for a modern secular world His years cut short we can only guess what his final contribution would have been But the letters are an inspiring testament to a life lived without compromise or despair in the face of overwhelmingly destructive forces

review Widerstand und Ergebung Briefe und Aufzeichnungen aus der Haft Widerstand und Ergebung Briefe und Aufzeichnungen aus der Haft characters ↠ 4 One of the great classics of prison literature Letters and Papers from Prison effectively serves as the last will and testament of the Lutheran theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer Dietrich Bonhoeffer was a young German pastor who was executed by the Nazis in 1945 for his part in the “officers’ plot” to assassinate Adolf Hitler       Thi. Really enjoyed the sections where D talked about the problems of faith in the modern world now post modern The world according to D has rejected God as a beginning point for science philosophy and even theology Christians are now called to live with Christ in a world that has rejected religion without being religious In the letters D s ideas were not completely expressed but a lot of interesting thoughts could come out of what he did write ONe can see where Peter Rollins got a lot of his inspiration for some of his ideas from this volume ie deus ex machina etc I would not recommend this book to those who aren t interested in or ready for theological issues and perplexities I like the fact that D could ruminate on the problems of faith discussing Bultmann Barth Kant and others and yet have a simple real trusting faith in Christ We suffer with Christ in a world that has rejected God The Christian does not run and hide but embracing his calling to live in a world without God and suffer with Christ in that world
