Product Description

Volume five in the sixteen volume series, Detrich Bonhoffer Works, includes Life Together and Prayerbook of the Bible. Life Together contains Bonhoffer's thoughts about the nature of Christian community based on the common life that he and his seminarians experienced at the seminary in Finkenwalde. He urges all that to be Christian means to live within community. Prayerbook of the Bible is a classic of Christian spirituality.

In this theological interpretation of the Psalms, Bonhoffer describes the moods of an individual's relationship with God and also the turns of love and heartbreak, joy and sorrow that are themselves Christian community's path to God.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer Works, a sixteen volume series, offers a fresh, critical translation of Bonhoeffer's writings, with introductions, annotations, and interpretations.

The stimulus for the writing of Life Together was the closing of the preacher's seminary at Finkenwalde.

Bonhoeffer completed the writing of Life Together in 1938.

Prayerbook of the Bible is a classic of Christian spirituality. In this theological interpretation of the Psalms, Bonhoeffer describes the moods of an individual's relationship with God and also the turns of love and heartbreak, of joy and sorrow, that are themselves the Christian community's path to God.

Author Bio

Dietrich Bonhoeffer was one of the most significant Protestant theologians of the twentieth century, a legacy sealed by his imprisonment in a German concentration camp and eventual execution. His resistance against Nazism and pivotal role in the Confessing Church movement have been key points of illumination for many on the nature of Christian political witness and action. Millions have been inspired by his rich reflections on the Christian life, especially his beloved works on discipleship and ethics. As a professor, seminary leader, and ecumenical theologian, Bonhoeffer's work also profoundly shaped academic theology, especially systematic theology, and the life of the church.

Geffrey B. Kelly is Professor of Systematic Theology at LaSalle University, Philadelphia.

James H. Burtness is Professor Emeritus of Systematic Theology at Luther Seminary in St. Paul, Minnesota. His published work includes Shaping the Future: The Ethics of Dietrich Bonhoeffer(1985).
