Letters and Papers from Prison: New edition, with a new introduction by Samuel Wells
SCM Press, Jan 1, 2018 - Biography & Autobiography - 176 pages
One of the great classics of prison literature, Letters and Papers from Prison effectively serves as the last will and testament of the Lutheran theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer, executed by the Nazis after incarceration in Tegel Prison. Acute and subtle, warm and perceptive, yet also profoundly moving, the documents collectively tell a very human story of loss, of courage, and of hope. Bonhoeffer's story continues to be as vitally relevant, as politically prophetic, and as theologically significant, as it always has.
This edition includes a new introduction by Samuel Wells
