Arnett’s earlierwork distinguished him as a premierscholar of the dialogic tradition andthis sophisticated volume advances his intellectual leadership to the forefront."Clifford Christians, from the Foreword
About the Author
Ronald C. Arnett is a professor and chair of the Department of Communication and Rhetorical Studies at Duquesne University and past editor of the Journal of Communication and Religion. He is the author of more than one hundred articles on philosophy and communication, and the author, coauthor, or editor of seven books, including Dialogic Civility in a Cynical Age: Community, Hope, and Interpersonal Relationships; Dialogic Education: Conversations About Ideas and Between Persons; and Communication and Community: Implications of Martin Buber’s Dialogue, a winner of the Religious Speech Communication Association Book Award.
Arnett raises some intriguing points regarding the intersection of postmodern theory and the work of Bonhoeffer. Unfortunately, the text suffers from poor editing. The phrase "world come of age" is repeated endlessly, spelling mistakes are frequent, and Arnett mentions key concepts, only to fully introduce and explain where they come from pages later. All of this makes the reading somewhat confusing and distracts from getting the most from the book, but if you can get past these flaws Arnett's work should give you a better understanding of Bonhoeffer's writing.
