       Dietrich Bonhoeffer's Letters and Papers from Prison is unmatched in emotion, passion, fascination, inspiration, controversy, theological substance, and contextual richness by any other autobiographical account from the Christian tradition in the twentieth century.

A Lutheran pastor and theologian, Bonhoeffer spent two years in Nazi prisons before being executed at age thirty-nine, just a month before the German surrender and days before allied liberation, for his role in the plot to kill Hitler.

The posthumously published Letters and Papers from Prison has had a tremendous impact on both Christian and secular thought since it first appeared in 1951, and has helped establish Bonhoeffer's reputation as one of the most important and controversial Protestant thinkers of the twentieth century.

In this, the first history of the book's remarkable global career, National Book Award-winning author Martin Marty tells how and why Letters and Papers from Prison has been read and used in such dramatically different ways, from the cold war to today.

In his late letters, Bonhoeffer raised tantalizing questions about the role of Christianity and the church in an increasingly secular world. Marty tells the story of how, in the 1960s and the following decades, these provocative ideas stirred a wide range of thinkers and activists, including civil rights and antiapartheid campaigners, 'death-of-God' theologians, and East German Marxists.

What emerges from Marty's work is what can be best described as a biography of a book, or a recounting of how Bonhoeffer's powerful but enigmatic and sometimes vague collection of letters and papers has been received.
