Much harder for me to follow than 'Life Together,' or 'Letters & Papers From Prison.' Didn't initially realize that Bonhoeffer did not write this book per se - it was compiled from his notes by one of his students.

Profound, as always, but felt choppy and lacked the coherency that I've found in his other writings.

Here is the key to thought of one of our time's central moral figures. It reveals Bonhoeffer's deep, firm roots in Christian doctrine, and it relates that doctrine to twentieth-century decisions every Christian must face. Essential for those interested in the developement of Bonhoeffer's thinking, Christ the Center is as well an important addition to Christological thought and a clear guides to how we are to believe and act in the uncertainty of the times. These lectures originally delivered at the University of Berlin (reconstructed by Eberhard Bethge from students' notes) have been completely retranslated by Edwin Robertson for this new edition. ( )
