This final volume in the series records Bonhoeffer's thoughts in the final chapters of his own life. He was arrested in 1943 and was executed on April 9th, 1945 for speaking out for the voiceless of those being mass murdered by the Nazi regime. Bonhoeffer's letters from prison represent his final theological legacy. They contain such well-known but difficult-to-pin-down phrases as 'religionless Christianity' and 'god of the gaps.' Now we have the definitive translation of these important works, along with additional never-before-published material.
