Read full description of the books:I wrote in my review of Bonhoeffer's Ethics that it would probably take another reading to be able to fully grasp what he was trying to say in the book. The same is true for Sanctorum Communio but instead of needing one reread, I think it might take two or three.
It's a challenging book to be sure, especially in its early chapters, but it's also more than worth it. Bonhoeffer writes with a high ecclesiology, something that many Christians today lack. For a book that's 80+ years old, it's shocking how relevant this is. For any Christian who is asking why church matters, Bonhoeffer's book provides essential answers. Highly recommended
Read information about the authorDietrich Bonhoeffer was a German Lutheran pastor and theologian. He was also a participant in the German Resistance movement against Nazism, a founding member of the Confessing Church. His involvement in plans by members of the Abwehr (the German Military Intelligence Office) to assassinate Adolf Hitler resulted in his arrest in April 1943 and his subsequent execution by hanging in April 1945, shortly before the war's end. His view of Christianity's role in the secular world has become very influential.
