"By including studies on higher education, technology, vocational realities of today, spiritual disciplines, and the pattern of congregational life, the volume brings Bonhoeffer's theological questions into conversation with contemporary issues throughout the church and academy. Ten contributors open a new window into evangelical interpretations of his theology, giving a sense of how Bonhoeffer himself struggled as well as where the future of Bonhoeffer studies may be headed." (Interpretation: A Journal of Bible and Theology, 2014, Vol 68(1))
"This volume provides an insightful treatment of multiple dimensions of work of Dietrich Bonhoeffer and it is a testimony to the ongoing viability of his legacy in the context of American Christianity." (Logia, Epiphany 2014)
"The book has some penetrating insights and is a real contribution to the study of Bonhoeffer's life and thought. . . . There are parts of the book which will move anyone who reads them. For example, the final chapter ends on a wonderful high, by quoting the camp doctor who was present at Bonhoeffer's hanging: 'In fifty years as a doctor I have hardly ever seen a man die so entirely submissive to the will of God.' Whatever reservations we may have about Bonhoeffer's orthodoxy he was clearly a man who followed Christ at a great cost. He lived and died as he preached." (Paul M. James, The Flame, October-December 2013)
"Bonhoeffer, Christ and Culture has its origin within the North American evangelical scholarly community, though not all its authors would identify themselves as such. What unites them is their deep appreciation for Bonhoeffer's life, witness and theology, the integrity of their scholarship, and their recognition of Bonhoeffer's continuing significance for the church in the twenty-first century. Having spent the past fifty years of my life engaged in dialogue with Bonhoeffer's legacy, I am delighted to be introduced to new perspectives and interpretations, and to learn again from those whose contribution to Bonhoeffer studies is now well established. I commend it to all who want to know Bonhoeffer better." (John W. de Gruchy, emeritus professor of Christian studies, University of Cape Town)
"The bulk of the essays that make up this edited volume derive from the 2012 Wheaton Theology Conference of the same name, 'Bonhoeffer, Christ and Culture.' With several additions from other events and occasions, the result is a diverse and valuable collection of studies on the life and thought of the German Lutheran pastor and theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer." (Jordan J. Ballor, Calvin Theological Journal, April 2015)

This year's theme was "Christian Political Witness" and reliable sources tell me it was a provocative, stimulating, and challenging event. A couple of years ago the theme was "Global Theology in Evangelical Perspective," a topic that greatly interests me, to say the least. In years prior, the conference covered all kinds of ground, from racial reconciliation to the sometimes testy relationship between religion and science, and from ecclesiology to worship and the arts. One of the really cool things about these conferences - which have been taking place, from what I can gather, for more than twenty years - is that IVP Academic has published collections of the conference's presentations-cum-essays, just about each year.
Bonhoeffer, Christ and Culture is the book that emerged from the April 2012 gathering, focused on the theological mind of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, perhaps best known for his role in a botched assassination attempt against Adolf Hitler, as well as his own subsequent imprisonment and execution. It is edited by Keith Johnson and Timothy Larsen, who both teach at Wheaton, and features essays from a variety of scholars with different areas of research and expertise.
Anyone who has read Bonhoeffer's work - or, perhaps more tellingly, anyone who has read the work of others regarding him - knows there were many sides to the German pastor and theologian. Indeed, many disparate (and at times contentious) parties claim Bonhoeffer as one of their own. Some closely identify with his deeply challenging call to count the cost of becoming a disciple of Jesus.Read more ›
