Dietrich Bonhoeffer : Reality And Resistance
What led Dietrich Bonhoeffer to his momentous decision to be involved in the plot to assassinate Adolf Hitler on July 20, 1944? What is the relation between his resistance activities and his theological and ethical reflections? Exploring these intriguing and complex relationships in Bonhoeffer’s life and thought during the turbulent 1930s and 1940s, Larry Rasmussen characterizes Bonhoeffer’s resistance as an enactment of his Christology lived out with utter seriousness. Originally published in 1972 and now updated with a new introduction by the author, Rasmussen’s Dietrich Bonhoeffer remains the defining study of Bonhoeffer’s views of Jesus Christ, his ethics, and his resistance against Hitler and the Nazi regime.

Great Divorce$17.99Add to cart
C.S. Lewis takes us on a profound journey through both heaven and hell in this engaging allegorical tale. Using his extraordinary descriptive powers, Lewis introduces us to supernatural beings who will change the way we think about good and evil. In The Great Divorce C.S. Lewis again employs his formidable talent for fable and allegory. The writer, in a dream, finds himself in a bus which travels between Hell and Heaven. This is the starting point for an extraordinary meditation upon good and evil which takes issue with William Blake’s The Marriage of Heaven and Hell.
