9780722044179: Introductory Theology

Nazi Germany produced an unusual group of Christian martyrs-among them, the nun philosopher Edith Stein, the mystical philosopher Simone Weil, and the peasant conscientious objector Hans JSgerstatter-but perhaps none so complex as the Lutheran theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer.
