This Companion serves as a guide for readers wanting to explore the thought and legacy of the great German theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer (1906-45). The book shows why Bonhoeffer remains such an attractive figure to so many people of diverse backgrounds. Its chapters, written by authors from differing national, theological and church contexts, provide a helpful introduction to, and commentary on, Bonhoeffer's life, work and writing and so guide the reader along the complex paths of his thought. Experts set out comprehensively Bonhoeffer's political, social and cultural contexts, and offer biographical information which is indispensable for the understanding of his theology. Major themes arising from the theology, and different interpretations to it, lead the reader into a dialogue with this most influential of thinkers who remains both fascinating and challenging. There is a chronology, a glossary and an index.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Irrespective of how well readers may already know Bonhoeffer, they will most certainly return to use this valuable resource again and again, both to learn and to be inspired.' Journal of Theology for Southern Africa
"...this Companion will serve as a useful, accessible resource both for new and experienced readers of Bonhoeffer, and it is hoped that Cambridge University Press will continue this fine series to include other prominent Christian theologians to accompany their future generations of readers as well." Journal of Church and State
"Those who are fairly well acquainted with Bonhoeffer's life, thought and work will find little new here. Those not so well versed in the Bonhoeffer's lore will be rewarded with a fine introduction to this "martyr" of the Nazi regime." Church History
..."fine collection of essays" Religious Review
