Dietrich Bonheoffer is best known for his role in a plot to assassinate Adolf Hitler and his subsequent execution at the hands of the Nazis. However, most of us are less familiar with his tireless work educating seminary students for a life of pastoral ministry- a role that occupied him for most of his adult life.
Anchored in a variety of influential lectures. personal letters and major works such as The Cost of Discipleship and Life Together, this book attempts to recover a largely unexamined part of Bonheoffer’s life, exploring his philosophy and practice of theological education in his original context.
“This is a fine, thoughtful study of Bonheoffer’s approach to theological education and its implications for the complex, changing world of seminary education today”. – Victoria J. Barnett, General editor, Dietrich Bonheoffer Works, English edition.
