Product Description

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.

Publisher's Description

In our current context, given what we are learning about the high cost of failed moral leadership, it is more urgent than ever to seek and study models for the formation of exceptional leaders. Readers who missed Burton Nelson and Geffrey Kelly's groundbreaking, insightful, painstakingly researched, and substantially encouraging study of what Dietrich Bonhoeffer teaches us about moral leadership when it was first published will be copiously rewarded by studying it now. This is a book to read for yourself and recommend to students, congregants, colleagues, and others whom you would like to draw into profound and fruitful meditation on Christian moral leadership.

Editorial Reviews

— 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. "

— 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. "
