Dietrich Bonhoeffer writes in one of his last prison letters that he had 'come to know and understand more and more the profound this-worldliness of Christianity.' Offering more than a general introduction or comprehensive survey of Bonhoeffer's life and thought, Barry Harvey's Taking Hold of the Real engages in a constructive dialogue with Bonhoeffer, contending that the 'shallow and banal this-worldliness' of modern society is ordered to a significant degree around the social technologies of religion, culture, and race.
In this volume, Harvey seeks to understand Bonhoeffer's descriptions, analyses, and insights in order to bring them to bear on the world given to us to attest to the works of God in the world. This thoughtful and creative dialogue not only demonstrates how Bonhoeffer's insights continue to serve as both a resource and a catalyst for our own reflections into the nature of profound this-worldliness, and also a remarkable example of a faithful response to the reality of a world united to its creator in the person of Jesus Christ.
