    Long ago and far away There is so much more to a person than what they are famous for, and reading letters they wrote (from the time when letters were written) gives one a peek into their lives. Hence, a deeper understanding of the pressures, the arguments, the day to day life of Dietrich Bonhoeffer deepens one's understanding of his writing about the seminary he ran from 1935 to 1937. The most interesting aspect is reading what is written by someone ignorant of the facts of the future; ignorant Long ago and far away There is so much more to a person than what they are famous for, and reading letters they wrote (from the time when letters were written) gives one a peek into their lives.

The most interesting aspect is reading what is written by someone ignorant of the facts of the future; ignorant also of the present in other places. My final conclusion: please oh please let humanity have learned the lessons of the 20th century.

    The least researched volume in the Bonhoeffer works, but it's clear he is reaching his prime here. This volume contains all of his lectures that he gave in the secret seminary while writing Discipleship. The result of this time leads him to write Life Together. It's really really good.
