The cost of discipleship by Dietrich Bonhoeffer( Book )

326 editions published between 1937 and 2016 in 10 languages and held by 4,756 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What can the call to discipleship, the adherence to the word of Jesus, mean today to the businessman, the soldier, the laborer, or the aristocrat? What did Jesus mean to say to us? What is his will for us today? Drawing on the Sermon on the Mount, Dietrich Bonhoeffer answers these timeless questions by providing a seminal reading of the dichotomy between "cheap grace" and "costly grace."

"Called by Karl Barth "the brilliant Ethics of Dietrich Bonhoeffer," this book is finally being recognized as Bonhoeffer's magnum opus and one of the most important works of Christian ethics of the last century. Presented here in a new translation and a new arrangement, it is based on intensive study of the original manuscripts. Bonhoeffer's Ethics is copiously annotated with historical notes and editorial commentary that reveal the theological basis of his radical critique of Nazi policies and practices."--Jacket

Sanctorum communio : a theological study of the sociology of the church by Dietrich Bonhoeffer( Book )

78 editions published between 1930 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 997 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dietrich Bonhoeffer was an important theologian, biblical interpreter, pastor, ecumenist, and leader in the Confessing Church in Germany during the Nazi period. His writings and the example of his life continue to speak to people from many backgrounds." "Here, for the first time in English is Sanctorum Communio in its entirety, including all material omitted from the original 1930 German publication. Bonhoeffer's doctoral dissertation sets out the theology of sociality that informed all his work, engaging social philosophy and sociology to interpret the church as "Christ existing as church-community." Here are the roots of his commitment to the Confessing Church and the ecumenical movement, and of his actions in the resistance movement for the sake of peace and Germany's future."--Jacket

Meditating on the Word by Dietrich Bonhoeffer( Book )

14 editions published between 1986 and 2008 in English and Korean and held by 775 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Daily, quiet reflection on the Word of God as it applies to me becomes for me a point of crystallization for everything that gives interior and exterior order to my life," wrote Dietrich Bonhoeffer to his colleagues at the warfront in the winter of 1942. Now back in print after a decade, this collection of Bonhoeffer's writings, sermons, and letters on meditation-including his unfinished meditation on Psalm 119-reveals his deep love for the Bible as a focus for his prayer life and a support in his courageous political life. "Why do I meditate?" asks Bonhoeffer. "Because I am a Christian. Therefore, every day in which I do not penetrate more deeply into the knowledge of God's Word in Holy Scripture is a lost day for me."
Act and being : transcendental philosophy and ontology in systematic theology by Dietrich Bonhoeffer( Book )

60 editions published between 1931 and 2015 in German and English and held by 750 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fresh, critical translation of the volume is now available in paper. Act and Being, written in 1929-1930 as Bonhoeffer's second dissertation, deals with the questions of consciousness and conscience in theology from the perspective of the Reformation insight about the origin of human sinfulness in the "heart turned in upon itself and thus open neither to the revelation of God nor to the encounter with the neighbor." Here, therefore, we find Bonhoeffer's thoughts about power, revelation, otherness, theological method, and theological anthropology
The martyred Christian : 160 readings from Dietrich Bonhoeffer by Dietrich Bonhoeffer( Book )

4 editions published between 1983 and 1985 in English and held by 712 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 'The Martyred Christian', bestselling Christian author Joan Winmill Brown brings together selected writings from the works of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, the courageous young German theologian executed by the Nazis for his participation in a plot to assassinate Hitler. Bonhoeffer called upon his fellow Christians to recognize that their mission must be in the real world--"not in the seclusion of the cloistered life but in the thick of foes". And in these 160 readings on subjects ranging from marriage, good works, and vocations to shame, forgiveness, and the Church, today's Christians will find a voice that is as compassionate as it is demanding. An excellent introduction for those who are not acquainted with Dietrich Bonhoeffer's thoughts, 'The Martyred Christian' will also provide those already familiar with Bonhoeffer's works an opportunity for deeper reflection on and new insights into their faith.

Psalms : the prayer book of the Bible by Dietrich Bonhoeffer( Book )

2 editions published between 1970 and 1974 in English and held by 528 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dietrich Bonhoeffer here gives on of his secrets behind the powerful witness of his own life. He had learned to pray the Psalms and from them drew on the power of God in his years of imprisonment. In this introduction, Bonhoeffer discusses the various types of Psalms and how they can be used to enrich our prayer life. In a brief biographical sketch, Eberhard Bethge, friend and biographer of the author, helps us understand the man who used the Psalms as his prayer book."--
Dietrich Bonhoeffer by Dietrich Bonhoeffer( Book )

15 editions published between 1963 and 2000 in 3 languages and held by 483 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dietrich Bonhoeffer - theologian, pastor, martyr - is one of the most significant Christian witnesses of the twentieth century. His writings challenge us to address the presence of God in the world and history. His courageous resistance against Hitler, his imprisonment and execution dramatize "the cost of discipleship." These selections, with a poignant introduction by Robert Coles, provide a penetrating entry to the heart of Bonhoeffer's message."--Jacket

Spiritual care by Dietrich Bonhoeffer( Book )

5 editions published in 1985 in English and Undetermined and held by 432 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bonhoeffer says spiritual care is a function of the congregation and that it is an aspect of the broader, more encompassing activity of proclamation. In Spiritual Care, we are confronted with the awesome truth that in speech God's presence is known and that speech is also our own; in silence God's presence is known and that silence is also our own. The text demands us to consider how the gospel message is brought to people in the midst of their personal lives, and his message and counsel use the tools given within the traditional life of the church so that such grace becomes enacted, enfleshed, and incarnate in the Christian community

87 editions published between 1953 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
