Endorsements & Reviews-

"In one of his famous letters from prison, Bonhoeffer stated that Christians can no longer try anxiously to reserves some place for the divine in a world that no longer even pays lip service to God, or seek to return to a time when a nominal faith was expected of virtually everybody. He wrote that such notions amount to a counsel of despair, and could only be made at the cost of intellectual integrity. Clements takes to heart Bonhoeffer's resolve to address modern life, not in its weakness, but in its strength, to look for the transcendence of God, not at the margins but at the center of the human village. The result is a book that is both timely and enduring."
