This book features previously untranslated writings, sermons, and selections from his letters spanning his entire pastoral-theological career, including his prison letters

Reading Bonhoeffer : a guide to his spiritual classics and selected writings on peace by Geffrey B Kelly( )

8 editions published between 1901 and 2009 in English and held by 448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The German theologian Dorothee Soelle once wrote that ""Dietrich Bonhoeffer is the one German theologian who will lead us into the third millennium"". Now as we near the end of the first decade of this third millennium, Bonhoeffer continues to inspire new generations of those who have recognised in him a spiritual guide in their actions on behalf of peace and social justice. The author, Geffrey Kelly, Bonhoeffer scholar and past president of the International Bonhoeffer Society, provides a critical analysis and reading guide to two of Bonhoeffer's classic spiritual texts.

Karl Rahner : theologian of the graced search for meaning by Karl Rahner( Book )

13 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 423 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Karl Rahner's (1904--1984) vast erudition, deeply creative proposals in all the key theological areas, and pervasive influence made him one of the giants of twentieth- century theology. Yet the very depth and extent of his contributions have made reading Rahner a formidable test of one's interest. Geffrey Kelly's anthology of Rahner's writings overcomes the obstacles beautifully. Like prior volumes in this highly praised series, Karl Rahner features a lengthy Introduction, which situates Rahner's thought firmly in his biography and spirituality. The Select Bibliography neatly organizes the vast work by and on Rahner. And the Selected Texts are creatively chosen, strategically beginning not with Rahner's philosophical anthropology but with the spiritual life. Together they comprise something of a mini- summa of Rahner's contributions to the chief areas of theology: prayer and the spiritual life; grace and freedom; revelation and the development of dogma; the doctrine of God; Jesus Christ; the Holy Spirit; the church; sacrament and symbol; Christian faith, praxis, and martyrdom; methodology in theology

"In this book, a physician, well-known for praying with his patients, and an award-winning professor of theology share their insights on how religious faith can provide help in the healing processes of today's health care ministry. The authors avoid rehashing analytical theories on suffering and the 'miracles' of healing they may have seen, instead examining how personal faith can enhance the immune system, how a spiritual outlook can help bear the burden of suffering and grief, and how forbearance and forgiveness are crucial in maintaining a healthy attitude toward life"--Jacket

Fiction from Tegel Prison by Dietrich Bonhoeffer( Book )

5 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dietrich Bonhoeffer (1906-1945) was an important theologian, biblical interpreter, pastor, ecumenist, and leader in the Confessing Church during the Nazi period." "Writing fiction, letters to his family, fiancee, and friend, and contending with his interrogator occupied Bonhoeffer during his first year in Tegel Prison. This book discloses a great deal of Bonhoeffer's family context, social world, and cultural milieu. Events from his life are recounted in a way that embodies and illuminates his theology. Characters and situations that represent Nazi types and attitudes are a form of social criticism and help to explain Bonhoeffer's participation in the resistance movement and the plot to kill Adolf Hitler, for which he was hanged."--Jacket
