A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. Dietrich Bonhoeffer was a uniquely reluctant and distinctly German Lutheran revolutionary. In this volume, the author, an Anglican priest and historian, argues that Bonhoeffer s powerful critique of Germany s moral derailment needs to be understood as the expression of a devout Lutheran Protestant. Bonhoeffer gradually recognized the ways in which the intellectual and religious traditions of his own class - the Bildungsburgertum - were enabling Nazi evil. In response, he offered a religiously inspired call to political opposition and Christian witness-which cost him his life. The author investigates Bonhoeffer s stance in terms of his confrontation with the legacy of Hegelianism and Neo-Rankeanism, and by highlighting Bonhoeffer s intellectual and spiritual journey, shows how his endeavor to politicially reeducate the German people must be examined in theological terms.

Synopsis :

Dietrich Bonhoeffer was a uniquely reluctant and distinctly German Lutheran revolutionary. In this volume, the author, an Anglican priest and historian, argues that Bonhoeffer's powerful critique of Germany's moral derailment needs to be understood as the expression of a devout Lutheran Protestant. Bonhoeffer gradually recognized the ways in which the intellectual and religious traditions of his own class - the Bildungsburgertum - were enabling Nazi evil. In response, he offered a religiously inspired call to political opposition and Christian witness-which cost him his life. The author investigates Bonhoeffer's stance in terms of his confrontation with the legacy of Hegelianism and Neo-Rankeanism, and by highlighting Bonhoeffer's intellectual and spiritual journey, shows how his endeavor to politicially reeducate the German people must be examined in theological terms.

Critique:

The strength and uniqueness of The Reluctant Revolutionary is that it combines a historical and theological analysis of Bonhoeffer's life and work, eschewing both the standard biographical narrative and theological textual approaches.A" * International Bonhoeffer Society Newsletter - a masterly analysis - and thoughtful summation of a large corpus of secondary literature, which is excellently listed in the bibliography - The novelty rests in the claim made that Bonhoeffer's crucial role lay in opposing the ideological underpinning of Hitler's rule, as well combatting the German Church's antisemitism. These endeavours, even if they were unsuccessful in the short run, were in the end to make Bonhoeffer a significant figure in world history - John Moses' style of writing is most commendably clear. He explains the technical terms and Germanic vocabulary in easily-recognized English - Moses' skillful portrayal of Bonhoeffer's setting and struggles during these traumatic and tragic years will be a valuable component in any such reassessment.A" * John Conway, University of British Columbia This is a fascinating and vitally important book - What with the exciting ongoing publication this decade of Bonhoeffer's complete works in English (16 vols.), this work of John Moses can be expected to draw in new players and to further inform and stimulate discussion of Bonhoeffer and his significance on a complex of issues crucial also in the English speaking world.A" * Maurice Schild
