Overview

Dietrich Bonhoeffer was an important theologian, biblical interpreter, pastor, ecumenist, and leader in the Confessing Church in Germany during the Nazi period. His writings and the example of his life continue to speak to people from many backgrounds. Here, for the first time in English is Sanctorum Communio in its entirety, including all material omitted from the original 1930 German publication. Bonhoeffer's doctoral dissertation sets out the theology of sociality that informed all his work, engaging social philosophy and sociology to interpret the church as "Christ existing as church-community." Here are the roots of his commitment to the Confessing Church and the ecumenical movement, and of his actions in the resistance movement for the sake of peace and Germany's future.
