glimpses into the life's work of what defines a "righteous German". The
book's title "A Testament to Freedom" has this thread of thought powerfully presented through the enlightened choices of these two editors."With a proper understanding of how God liberates people from themselves and of how this frees people to be in a relationship with God"is the true essence that is revealed throughout "The Testament to Freedom. We see a Bonhoeffer who struggles in forming his own theology
only to understand that theology in it's own importance only becomes a confining philosophy.The editors as academics, in their introductory comments to each of the selected writings do not bring any additional

Bonhoeffer's life's work as presented in"A Testament to Freedom" exhorts
"For Christians there is no other law than the law of freedom".
