In this volume, Peter Frick attempts to answer the question of how to understand Bonhoeffer. By examining different aspects of his thought in a comprehensive manner, each of the essays, which were written between 2007 and 2014, illuminates nuances of the hermeneutical, philosophical, theological, and social dimensions of Bonhoeffer's writings.
How are we to understand Bonhoeffer? In these essays, Peter Frick attempts to answer this question by examining different aspects of Bonhoeffer's thought, thus illuminating the hermeneutical, philosophical, theological, and social dimensions of his writings. All sixteen essays collected here were written between 2007 and 2014; some of them address the question of methodology, others contribute to Bonhoeffer's intellectual formation, and still others seek to connect with contemporary questions. The aim of the volume is to present Bonhoeffer's key theological and philosophical ideas, and to emphasize their contemporary relevance.
