Publisher's Description

In exploring the spiritual dimensions of Dietrich Bonhoeffer's life and writings, this new book not only fills a crucial gap in Bonhoeffer studies but it also brings to the fore those aspects of his thought that can inform and inspire moral leadership today.

The Cost of Moral Leadership probes the spirituality of this modern Christian martyr and shows how his spiritual life formed him into an exceptional moral leader in a period known for grievous immorality. Geffrey Kelly and F. Burton Nelson explore Bonhoeffer's spirituality in the context of his life story, his work for social justice, his Christocentric theology, his emphasis on discipleship, his preaching, and his prolific writing.

Editorial Reviews

Academy of Parish ClergyTop Ten Books of the Year (2003)

John de Gruchy
"Geffrey Kelly and Burton Nelson are undoubtedly among the foremost Bonhoeffer scholars today. Their work is based on painstaking research, and they write with knowledge, conviction, and passion. They have done much to promote Bonhoeffer's legacy and its contemporary challenge. This latest offering of theirs will fill a gap in the available literature and contribute to sustaining the remarkable interest in Bonhoeffer's life and works."

Glen Stassen
"Dietrich Bonhoeffer's spirituality, his following the incarnate and living Jesus, keeps drawing me and growing numbers of others closer to him. The Cost of Moral Leadership invites us into this spirituality with absolutely profound and accurate sensitivity. The book emphasizes the work of the Holy Spirit to make true for all Christians what was true only for Jesus Christ — namely, the conforming of our human wills to God's will — and underscores the Spirit's mission to stir the teachings of Jesus into the hearts of the faithful. This book stirs my heart. "

John Godsey
"This splendid book is imaginatively constructed and calculated to make us think about what it means, really, to be a Christian. Dietrich Bonhoeffer challenges us in a deep way. The whole book will be a treasure for anyone who wants to know the real Bonhoeffer. "

William J. Peck
"This book is a groundbreaking work — massive, encouraging, and convincing. It opens new pathways in the exploration of Dietrich Bonhoeffer's legacy and provides a valuable contribution to our understanding of Bonhoeffer's view of the Holy Spirit. A major offering of the book is the intensity and clarity with which it documents Bonhoeffer's solidarity with the oppressed. Reading this book gives one a new understanding of Jesus Christ as that most oppressed and abandoned of persons whom, in torn clothing, we meet in our everyday lives. This is linked to the theme of sharing in the sufferings of God as well as to that of courageous ethical integrity. "

Stanley Hauerwas
"Rare is the book that can introduce a thinker as complex as Dietrich Bonhoeffer and, at the same time, inform Bonhoeffer scholars. In this extraordinary book, however, Geffrey Kelly and F. Burton Nelson do just that, providing one of the best introductions to Bonhoeffer available while also helping those who know his work well to see that work in a new and fascinating light. Equally important is the authors' ability to help us see how Bonhoeffer remains an essential figure for Christians today. His struggles remain our struggles."

Christian Century
"A book for the college and seminary classroom, the clergy study group and the Sunday morning discussion class, as well as the theologian's library. Above all, this is a book for those prepared to think about moral leadership at a time when the future is unclear and when self-righteous certainty dominates public discourse. "
