Widerstand und Ergebung Briefe und Aufzeichnungen aus der Haft

One of the great classics of prison literature Letters and Papers from Prison effectively serves as the last will and testament of the Lutheran theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer Dietrich Bonhoeffer was a young German pastor who was executed by the Nazis in 1945 for his part in the “officers’ plot” to assassinate Adolf Hitler       Thi. You must never doubt that I m traveling with gratitude and cheerfulness along the road where I m being led Dietrich Bonhoeffer letter from prison Aug 23 1944My sister pointed out how much significant writing comes from people who were incarcerated The Apostle Paul several of his epistles Martin Luther King Jr Letter from a Birmingham Jail John Bunyan wrote at least the first part of The Pilgrim s Progress while in jail I m sure there are many other examples and Letters and Papers from Prison certainly belongs with the othersThis is the greatly enlarged edition The original edition limited itself to Bonhoeffer s letters and only to those that addressed theological concepts This edition includes many letters written to him and his letters on temporal matters Thus we not only learn about his theology we see him living it out We see him also as a plain old human with needs wants and fears Several of his early letters to his parents include a reuest for smoking materialsAlmost all of the theology comes in letters written to his friend and in law Eberhard Bethge who married Bonhoeffer s niece This is theology raw and one suspects it might have been refined a bit before it had been released as a theological work for a larger audience Some of it is troubling and some of it I just don t get But the essence of it I think is summed up in a phrase that has become popular Christianity is not a religion it s a relationship Don t misunderstand Bonhoeffer doesn t use that phrase But I think it s what he was getting atThis edition may have been expanded a tad too much I don t think his random notes serve any purpose I don t think he was a very good poet but I don t know much about poetry But what emerges overall is a moving portrait of a man of remarkable humanity courage and conviction in a time of incredible darkness

S expanded version of Letters and Papers from Prison shifts the emphasis of earlier editions of Bonhoeffer’s theological reflections to the private sphere of his life His letters appear in greater detail and show his daily concerns Letters from Bonhoeffer’s parents siblings and other relatives have also been added in addition to previously. Oh my As if I weren t already inordinately fond of Bonhoeffer his writings and his life this collection of his letters and notes written while he was in prison on suspicion of conspiracy to assassinate Hitler cements him in my high estimation I feel so many things about this book In the midst of such a difficult painful experience Bonhoeffer displays deep faith and profound composure in his letters to his family and fiance I was often struck by how much pain he tries to alleviate in their experience of a loved one being in prison And it always feels sincere Granted Bonhoeffer s World War II German prison experience was comfortable than was typical but I truly believe him when he writes he is comfortable at peace and even finding ways to enjoy solitude He expresses expected frustration at the legal delays and sadness at missing big family events but it is always with an acceptance of God s timing and allowance The book is also a wonderful look into Bonhoeffer s intimate theological wonderings but I actually treasure the book most for the deep friendship and love displayed in the letters between him and Eberhard Bethge Whereas Bonhoeffer displays strength and poise in his letters to his family he lets the walls down with Bethge Through the letters and personally spiritual poems he sends to Bethge we get a uniue look into the deep emotional humanity of a rather stoic German theologian I was struck by Bonhoeffer s many reuests to Bethge to write longer letters and to respond in depth to Bonhoeffer s uestions and spiritual explorations In the midst of an imposed ascetic lifestyle Bonhoeffer found treasures in his own writings and in the writings of his loved ones Even Bonhoeffer s poetry while uite poor revealed surprising emotional depths in a typically cool objective man Bonhoeffer clearly received uniue encouragement and affirmation from Bethge not only in Bethge s letters but in the space created between the two friends for emotional expression support and spiritual discovery It was an incredibly poignant reading experienceI cried while reading the last 30 pages of this book I am tearing up writing this review I only say that to illustrate how unexpectedly emotional I was reading Bonhoeffer s letters despite the minimal action and the rather staid tone I can t wait to read of Bonhoeffer s works and to reread Metaxas biography with a deeper knowledge of the man himself Bonhoeffer s commitment to the necessary worldliness of Christian living is inspirational not just because of the depth of his wisdom but because of the example he provides in his life imprisonment and death

    I cannot recommend this edition given the other ones that are available but I happened to have it Context is needed not least because Bonhoeffer was playing a role in many of his letters for the censors and they read as being pretty naive and over cheerful I finally started reading the relevant parts of Bonhoef
