The Collected Sermons of Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Many people think of Dietrich Bonhoeffer as primarily an activist-theologian. Yet, Bonhoeffer spent most of his public life as a pastor. In his eloquent and beautifully crafted sermons, Bonhoeffer's passion and deep understanding of the Gospel shine through with brilliance.
Comprised of 31 sermons, The Collected Sermons of Dietrich Bonhoeffer demonstrates the German pastor's homiletical mastery by providing sermons from various biblical genres while also showing the depth of his insight into specific texts by providing multiple sermons from specific passages such as 1 Corinthians 13 and Colossians 3.1-4.
Far different from Bonhoeffer's academic or books on the Christian life such as Discipleship (a.k.a. The Cost of Discipleship), these sermons show the man in his immediate context, reacting to real events and applying the Gospel in real time. This book will introduce readers to Bonhoeffer the minister through his own sermons and will help all readers to understand his message at a deeper level.
This book is appropriate for all readers. Particularly, Bonhoeffer enthusiasts whether they are academics or lay persons will find these sermons quite valuable.

Preaching, according to Bonhoeffer, is like offering an apple to a child. The gospel is proclaimed, but for it to be received as gift depends on whether or not the hearer is in a position to do so. Offered here are thirty-one of Pastor Bonhoeffer's sermons, in new English translations, which he preached at various times of the year and in a variety of different settings. Each is introduced by Bonhoeffer translator Isabel Best who also provides a brief biography of Bonhoeffer. The foreword is by Victoria J. Barnett, general editor of the Dietrich Bonhoeffer Works, English edition, published by Fortress Press, from which these sermons are selected.
In his preaching, Bonhoeffer's strong, personal faiththe foundation for everything he didshines in the darkness of Hitler's Third Reich and in the church struggle against it. Though not overtly political, Bonhoeffer's deep concern for the developments in his world is revealed in his sermons as he seeks to draw the listener into conversation with the promises and claims of the gospela conversation readers today are invited to join.
Isabel Best has contributed translations to a number of volumes in the English language series of Dietrich Bonhoeffer Works published by Fortress Press, including Letters and Papers from Prison, Vol. 8 (2009), Berlin: 1932-1933, Vol. 12(2009), London, 1933-1935, Vol. 13 (2007), and Ecumenical, Academic, and Pastoral Work: 1931-1932, Vol. 11 (2012). She was also the translator of Ferdinand Schlingensiepen"s Dietrich Bonhoeffer 1906-1945: Martyr, Thinker, Man of Resistance (2010).
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.
