A revised translation of the same material was published in 1967, but in 1971 this was replaced by an enlarged edition containing a great deal of new material released by Eberhard Bethge, Bonhoeffer's friend and literary executor, to mark the twenty-fifth anniversary in 1970 of Bonhoeffer's death at the hands of the Nazis. This new material - further letters and occasional pieces written by Bonhoeffer while in prison; the other side of the correspondence, from Bethge and the Bonhoeffer family; an article by Bonhoeffer's fiancee, Maria von Wedemeyer-Weller, describing unpublished letters to her - subtly alters the impression which this unique correspondence had made. The startling theology is still there, but it now emerges from a deeply moving story of a very human man deprived of his freedom indefintely; longing for freedom, pining for his fiancee, frustrated by forced inactivity, yet turning all these things into a triumphant expression of the power of human courage and the grace of God.Read Less

Letters and Papers from Prison translated from the German One of the great classics of prison literature, "Letters and Papers from Prison" effectively serves as the last will and testament of the Lutheran theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Dietrich Bonhoeffer was a young German pastor who was executed by the Nazis in 1945 for his part in the "officers' plot" to assassinate Adolf Hitler. This expanded version of "Letters and Papers from Prison" shifts the emphasis of earlier editions of Bonhoeffer's theological reflections to the private sphere of his life. His letters appear in greater detail and show his daily concerns. Letters from Bonhoeffer's parents, siblings, and other relatives have also been added, in addition to previously inaccessible letters and legal papers referring to his trial. Acute and subtle, warm and perceptive, yet also profoundly moving, the documents collectively tell a very human story of loss, of courage, and of hope. Bonhoeffer's story seems as vitally relevant, as politically prophetic, and as theologically significant today, as it did yesterday.
