A collection of sermons spanning Bonhoeffer's all-too-short ministry, with helpful biographical introductions that place the sermons in the context of Bonhoeffer's life and world (and World War II) events. Some of the later pieces are especially gripping, making one wonder how Bonhoeffer's theology may have developed from there and what kind of challenges he might pose in our present time. Merry Christmas! ( )
