Widerstand und Ergebung Briefe und Aufzeichnungen aus der Haft

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 Dietrich Bonhoeffer was a young German pastor who was executed by the Nazis in 1945 for his part in the “officers’ plot” to assassinate Adolf Hitler       Thi You must never doubt that I m traveling with gratitude and cheerfulness along the road where I m being led Dietrich Bonhoeffer letter from prison Aug 23 1944My sister pointed out how much significant writing comes from people who were incarcerated The Apostle Paul several of his epistles Martin Luther King Jr Letter from a Birmingham Jail John Bunyan wrote at least the first part of The Pilgrim s Progress while in jail I m sure there are many other examples and Letters and Papers from Prison certainly belongs with the othersThis is the greatly enlarged edition The original edition limited itself to Bonhoeffer s letters and only to those that addressed theological concepts This edition includes many letters written to him and his letters on temporal matters Thus we not only learn about his theology we see him living it out We see him also as a plain old human with needs wants and fears Several of his early letters to his parents include a reuest for smoking materialsAlmost all of the theology comes in letters written to his friend and in law Eberhard Bethge who married Bonhoeffer s niece This is theology raw and one suspects it might have been refined a bit before it had been released as a theological work for a larger audience Some of it is troubling and some of it I just don t get But the essence of it I think is summed up in a phrase that has become popular Christianity is not a religion it s a relationship Don t misunderstand Bonhoeffer doesn t use that phrase But I think it s what he was getting atThis edition may have been expanded a tad too much I don t think his random notes serve any purpose I don t think he was a very good poet but I don t know much about poetry But what emerges overall is a moving portrait of a man of remarkable humanity courage and conviction in a time of incredible darkness

Inaccessible letters and legal papers referring to his trial      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 seems as vitally relevant as politically prophetic and as theologically significant today as it did yesterd I cannot recommend this edition given the other ones that are available but I happened to have it Context is needed not least because Bonhoeffer was playing a role in many of his letters for the censors and they read as being pretty naive and over cheerful I finally started reading the relevant parts of Bonhoeffer Pastor Martyr Prophet Spy beside it and that helped a lotWhat made B such a great man He was brilliant and came from a great family and had great opportunities But I think one of the biggest factors that made him the man he was was his discipline He was very disciplined about meditating on the Bible and prayer though not in a fundamentalist way Further as he wrote in his poem Stations on the Road to Freedom discipline is essential to freedom including the ability to act and do the right thing Reading this book even knowing the ending in advance is sad It s sad that we lost such a man to the insanity of Nazi Germany But B believed in a greater life than the one that he was living and he hoped in that in very difficult circumstances This is the end For me the beginning of life
