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, executed by the Nazis after incarceration in Tegel Prison. Acute and subtle, warm and perceptive, yet also profoundly moving, the documents collectively tell a very human story of loss, of courage, and of hope. Bonhoeffer's story seems as vitally relevant, as politically prophetic, and as theologically significant, as it did yesterday.
This abridged edition of the 1971 Letters and Papers From Prison: The Enlarged Edition has now been reissued with a new Preface by one of Bonhoeffer's leading interpreters, Peter Selby, Bishop of Worcester.
