Wonderful and so incredibly insightful as expected from Bonhoeffer. This book is the ultimate for looking at Genesis. So God honoring, too. It does a spirit good.

Format: Hardcover
It goes without saying that if one does not grasp the events at the beginning of a book, what transpires from that point forward will either not make sense, will be greatly misunderstood, or a terrifying combination of both. When it comes to understanding and applying the grand message of Scripture, namely the message of salvation and redemption displayed throughout, it is thus vital to understand why salvation and redemption is required. Thus, when it comes to Genesis 1-3, it is a must to properly read and apply what the movement from perfection to sin is all about and how that ties into the follow on story found in Scripture of how God is moving all things in His divine plan towards restoration for those who are His. Dietrich Bonhoeffer, in his excellent book Creation and Fall: A Theological Exposition of Genesis 1-3, takes the reader through a needed journey concerning this foundational biblical subject matter.

For those who may not be familiar with Dietrich Bonhoeffer, he was an important figure within the Confessing Church in Germany during the time of the Nazi regime of the 1930s. His better known works include titles such as The Cost of Discipleship and Ethics. Creation and Fall stands tall as one of Bonhoeffer’s most important works.

Bonhoeffer rightly begins his discussion with an analysis of what this term beginning is all about. He comments “the Bible begins with the free confirmation, attestation, or revelation of God by God.” This means that Scripture begins with the assumption and declaration that God is Creator and all things derive from Him and are for Him.

Format: Hardcover
This entirely new translation is a part of the Dietrich Bonhoeffer Works, the 17 volume critical English Edition being published by Fortress Press. It is based on the text of the German critical edition, the Dietrich Bonhoeffer Werke published by Guetersloher Verlagshaus. Each volume in this new English edition provides the best available English translation, correcting errors and omissions in previous versions. An extensive introduction to the text especially for the English-language reader provides the historical and theological context necessary to understand Bonhoeffer's written legacy. This new edition will become the standard edition of Bonhoeffer's writings for the nonspecialist and the scholar as well, superseding all previous translations.
