About-

Patriotism continues to be a serious issue for Christians, brought about by recent wars and events. Is patriotism 'a love that asks no questions,' or does it insist on critical self - analysis?

In Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Keith Clements finds a profound and many - sided understanding of what it means to love and serve one's country. The witness of Bonhoeffer's life, his writings and his death is used asa counterpoint reflection of the national and international situation we face decades after Nazi Germany.

A warm, receptive and revealing portrait of Bonhoeffer emerges from these pages, and one which brillitantly illuminates the complex issues of patriotism today.
