Red apple sermons

In the books discussed in these columns, there is probably no theologian and pastor who has been more often mentioned or quoted than Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Yet, until an ongoing project under the title Dietrich Bonhoeffer Works in English was launched in 1996, the range of his life and work was relatively unknown.

Now, his writings are available in 16 carefully annotated volumes, along with four others that include The Collected Sermons of Dietrich Bonhoeffer (Fortress Press, Minneapolis, 2012).

This latest publication gathers 31 of Bonhoeffer’s sermons in a new English translation. They were preached at various times of the year and in many different settings, and each is helpfully set in context by Isobel Best (one of the five translators), who also provides a helpful 14-page biographical introduction.
