Description

Creation and Fall originated in lectures given by Dietrich Bonhoeffer at the University of Berlin in the winter semester of 1932—33 during the demise of the Weimar Republic and the birth of the Third Reich. In the course of these events, Bonhoeffer called his students to focus their attention on the word of God the word of truth in a time of turmoil.

Endorsements

"Delivered with passion and kerygmatic style rather than in the language of academic discourse, Creation and Fall retains the sense of immediacy, relevance, and power that first spoke to Bonhoffer's students."
— John W. de Gruchy

Reviews

Reviewed by Ronald MacLennan, Bethany College, Lindsborg, Kansas

"For pastors, teachers, students, and others whose reading of Bonhoeffer has been too little or too long ago or both, ... this volume serves as a strong incentive to renew and deepen one's acquaintance with this theologian, whose writing, though he has been dead for more than half a century, seems so fresh and modern. ...

"Bonhoeffer reveals a richness of biblical underpinning that is often not apparent in the works of theologians. It is as much a meditation as an exposition. ...

"The crisp, contemporary translation is easy to read from beginning to end without letting the scholarly apparatus obtrude; but, on the other hand, the introduction, notes, and end material allow one to pursue issues to whatever depth one wishes."
