Here is the key to the thought of one of our time's central moral figures. It reveals Bonhoeffer's deep, firm roots in Christian doctrine, and it relates that doctrine to twentieth-century decisions every Christian must face. Essential for those interested in the development of Bonhoeffer's thinking, Christ the Center is as well an important addition to Christological thought and a clear guide to how we are to believe and act in the uncertainty of the times.
These lectures, originally delivered at the University of Berlin and reconstructed by Eberhard Bethge from students' notes, make Christianity the hinge upon which hangs all of Bonhoeffer's thought. True to his Lutheran roots, he was particularly eloquent on the God-man. This completely new translation was completed by Edwin Robertson.
