Bonhoeffer's Ecclesiology

Michael Mawson

  • Offers the first book-length treatment of Bonhoeffer's Sanctorum Communio in English
  • Analyses Bonhoeffer's engagement with social theory and attempt at ecclesiology
  • Demonstrates that it contains a rich and nuanced approach to the church, one which displays many of Bonhoeffer's key influences--especially Luther, Hegel, Troeltsch, and Barth--while being distinctive in its own right
  • Argues that Sanctorum Communio's theology is built around a complex dialectic of creation, sin, and reconciliation.
