Reviews - What do customers think about Creation and Fall (Dietrich Bonhoeffer Works, Vol. 3)?
Great words on Genesis 3 Oct 17, 2003
In general, Bonhoeffer's comments on chapters 1-2 are extremely philosophical, abstract, and largely unhelpful. But his work on Genesis 3 is worth the price of the book. Good resource for preachers preparing sermons on Genesis.
