This Companion serves as a guide for readers wanting to explore the thought and legacy of the great German theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer (1906-45). Its chapters, written by authors from differing national, theological and church contexts, provide an introduction to, and commentary on, Bonhoeffer's life and work, guiding the reader along the paths of his thought. Experts set out Bonhoeffer's political, social and cultural contexts, and offer biographical information that is indispensable for the understanding of his theology. There is a chronology and a glossary.Reviews"... 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 HistoryContentsNotes on contribtuorsPrefaceGlossaryChronologyPart I.
