The book now has more than 200 photographs, including many portraits of Bonhoeffer's ancestors and family gatherings, some never before published.

Endorsements: "These images are described and excerpted in ways that helpfully illumine the political and ecclesiastical contexts of Bonhoeffer's life, as well as the personal relationships that meant so much to him. Think of this book as a companion volume to Eberhard Bethge's biography. No serious student of Bonhoeffer should be without either." — Stephen Haynes, author of The Bonhoeffer Legacy and The Bonhoeffer Phenomenon
"It is remarkable how much of the life and the life-world of Bonhoeffer has been distilled in these pages. The century of his birth — and the character and influence of his person — is beautifully served by this handsome volume." — Larry Rasmussen, Union Theological Seminary, New York CityAbout the Author:
Renate Bethge, an author and editor, is a niece of Dietrich Bonhoeffer and widow of Bonhoeffer’s close friend Eberhard Bethge, who initiated the widespread publication of Bonhoeffer’s writings after his death and authored the definitive biography.
