Product Description

This brief yet brilliant book shows that the prison reflections of Dietrich Bonhoeffer contain profound inspiration for all who desire to walk more closely with Jesus in today's troubled and often troubling world. Illuminating the context and content of Bonhoeffer's life and thought, this book uses writings of the famous Christian martyr to critique the spirit of the age and to encourage in contemporary Christians the depth of commitment required to stand firm against the contemptuous winds of postmodern culture.

Editorial Reviews

David L. Tiede
"John Matthews has been captivated by Dietrich Bonhoeffer for thirty years, long before the film brought this modern Christian martyr back into the public eye. This book will take you into Bonhoeffer's struggle of terror and faith in his Letters and Papers from Prison. Guided by Matthews's keen mind and pastoral courage, you will be led past the crumbling pillars of worn religiosity to the hidden disciplines through which Christians live in difficult times."

Jean Bethke Elshtain
"Anxious Souls Will Ask . . . is a powerful and poignant companion to Bonhoeffer's Letters and Papers from Prison. Newcomers to Bonhoeffer's text and Bonhoeffer scholars alike will benefit from the fruits of John Matthews's pilgrimage alongside Bonhoeffer."

Lori Brandt Hale
"John Matthews has written a remarkable book. Skillfully weaving the threads of continuity from Bonhoeffer's earlier work, Matthews gets to the heart of the prison writings, shows their significance for our contemporary context, and does so in a way that is clear and accessible to all readers. Matthews's intended audience is laypersons in church settings, but his book is a perfect companion piece to Letters and Papers from Prison for college students and others encountering Bonhoeffer for the first time."

Mark J. Molldrem
"This little volume — and the volumes by Bonhoeffer that its pages open up — should be within arm's reach of every parish pastor. It not only accurately contextualizes Bonhoeffer's legacy to the church but also converts it masterfully into the contemporary context of Christian ministry. John Matthews's few choice words speak volumes on how the church today and tomorrow can serve as Christ in a world come of age."

James Patrick Kelley
"Here is a useful 'reader's guide' to key Bonhoeffer texts that profoundly deepens both one's sense of the importance of 'foundations' for living and one's sense that such commitments, in order to be seriously held, require more than mouthing abstract platitudes."
