Dietrich Bonhoeffer (19061945) has influenced the entire post-World War II era with his life and legacy. Executed in a Nazi concentration camp, he has attained international recognition and fame. His prison experience resulted in writings focused on contemporary and future challenges facing the Christian church. For him, a Christian was called to participate in the suffering of God in the secular life, to be a person for others. Who is Christ for us today? was his insistent question.
Interest in Bonhoeffer remains at a high peak. This volume by Dallas Roark shows how Bonhoeffer has influenced both conservative and liberal wings of Christianity as well as secularists, and how he remains a source of inspiration for all Christians who suffer under oppressive political regimes.
