About-

Recent scholarship in a number of disciplines has explored the relationship between ontology and ethics. The essays in this collection indicate what the German theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer (1906-1945) has to contribute to this discussion. By engaging the breadth of his academic and pastoral writings, these essays retrieve Bonhoeffer's theology for a contemporary audience. They do so by critically clarifying and extending key concepts developed by Bonhoeffer across his corpus and in dialogue with Hegel, Heidegger, Dilthey, Barth, and others. They also create dialogues between Bonhoeffer and more recent figures like Levinas, Agamben, Foucault, and Lacoste. Finally, they take up pressing, contemporary ethical issues such as globalization, managerialism, and racism.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"This essay collection is a great addition to Bonhoeffer scholarship that shows the ongoing relevance of this important theologian, not merely for postmodern academic concerns but for wider issues of global significance."
--Jens Zimmermann, Trinity Western University

"There is no mystery in the fact that interest in Dietrich Bonhoeffer has remained consistently high since the publication of his prison correspondence. In this volume we hear from yet another generation of young scholars who find him to be an important interlocutor for contemporary theology. These essays bring valuable new insights and perspectives to bear on Bonhoeffer's life and thought, particularly with regard to the connection between ontology and ethical reflection in his theology."
--Barry Harvey, Baylor University
