I found this to be - less than I had hoped for; the essays are good - but not what I had hoped for - inspiration wise. The book is a set of brief, frequently less than a page, essays on various topics of Christian life. If you are a die-hard Bonhoeffer lover you will no doubt love it. Personally I can take or leave Bonhoeffer, and found the "Letters and Papers from Prison" much more useful - to be fair of course "letters and papers" is about 5 times the size of this text.
Meditations on the Cross. Sep 1, 2000
This book is has selection of texts from Dietrich Bonhoeffers sermons, lectures, books and his letters from prison. Some of the texts are short (only few lines) while others are up to 13 pages long. But here you find theology of the cross, and that in a very broad sense. Hereýs a short text from this book from page 49: "Jesus is not a human being but the human being. Whatever happens to him also happens to human beings as such; it happens to everyone; and thus also to us. The name Jesus embraces all of humanity and all of God." What happened on the cross happens to humanity, human beings as such, that means all of us! The cross, resurrection and overcoming death was central in Dietrich Bonhoeffers theological work so hereýs just a glimpse of what one of the greatest theologian in the 20th century said and wrote but highly enjoyable. I only wonder if it wasnýt possible to have this book a bit longer? It is 94 pages long and it does not take a long time to read it. But itýs a good book.
