Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...this Companion will serve as a useful, accessible resource both for new and experienced readers of Bonhoeffer, and it is hoped that Cambridge University Press will continue this fine series to include other prominent Christian theologians to accompany their future generations of readers as well." Journal of Church and State

"Those who are fairly well acquainted with Bonhoeffer's life, thought and work will find little new here. Those not so well versed in the Bonhoeffer's lore will be rewarded with a fine introduction to this "martyr" of the Nazi regime." Church History

..."fine collection of essays" Religious Review
