Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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.
