Dietrich Bonhoeffer's Christian Humanism

Jens Zimmermann

  • Offers comprehensive analysis of Bonhoeffer's texts, sermons, and letters to show that his theology represents a Christian (Christological) humanism
  • Allows readers to view Bonhoeffer's whole theology in light of the greater Christian tradition, from the church fathers onwards
  • Maintains that Bonhoeffer's Christian humanism, with its Christ-centered anthropology, ecclesiology, and hermeneutic, offers an important, orthodox Christian framework for discussing contemporary social issues
