View all copies of this ISBN edition:

In this arresting new study of Bonhoeffer as a theologian and as an activist, Weikart carefully and persuasively argues that Bonhoeffer's postwar reputation as an anti-Nazi martyr has subsumed aspects of his religious and cultural beliefs and praxis to the detriment of both. Dietrich Bonhoeffer suffered for his moral courage and his anti-Nazis activities. Professor Richard Weikart argues that Bonhoeffer's theology has also suffered a terrible fate: misunderstanding. Rather than being a largely conservative affair as argued by Huntemann and others, Bonhoeffer was informed and radicalized by existentialism and the political currents of his time. In no other work is Dietrich Bonhoeffer's soterilogy examined in such depth and his evangelism reaffirmed.
