'On any showing, the book is a great Christian classic. Reading it is, in itself, a religious experience. I like it the better because the stance of heroism is one that Bonhoeffer eyes with suspicion; he is in all things human and for that very reason, in the end sublime.'
'The advantage of this abridged version is that it contains all the important passages relating to Bonhoeffer's so-called 'new theology' while omitting much of the not so important material contained in the larger edition.'
