Editorial Reviews

Theological Studies
"Brilliant book... All serious researchers into Bonhoeffer's theology must now somehow come to grips with Green's interpretation."
Publishers Weekly
Eerdmans offers some heavy-duty theology in the revised edition of Bonhoeffer: A Theology of Sociality by Hartford Seminary professor Clifford Green. Green's 1975 text, which focused on Bonhoeffer's early theology, has been updated with the inclusion of some of the theologian's letters, discovered in 1998 in the archives of Princeton Theological Seminary. Some of these letters, which are presented in a valuable appendix, address Bonhoeffer's work in the Resistance during World War II. The new edition also includes a chapter about the German theologian's foundational Ethics.
Expository Times
One of half a dozen truly important books on Bonhoeffer.
Journal of Theology for Southern Africa
"Fresh discoveries in the 'Bonhoeffer corpus' which throw light on the whole.... Green's style makes his book a joy to read."
Ecumenical Review
"A model of scholarly exposition.... Green has established himself as the foremost Bonhoeffer scholar writing in English.... Rarely has a single volume done so much to clear the air and to reorient scholarship along the right track. No future study of Bonhoeffer will be able to ignore Green's [book]."
Newsletter of the International Bonhoeffer Society

Rarely has a single volume done so much to clear the air and to reorient scholarship along the right track. No future study of Bonhoeffer will be able to ignore Green's [book]."
