Reviews - What do customers think about Authentic Faith: Bonhoeffer's Theological Ethics in Context?
Good Read, a little dense May 5, 2010
Authentic Faith does a good job examining Bonhoeffer's life and theology, so it is a decent companion to reading Bonhoeffer. However, Todt's writing is stiffly formal, so some of the chapters are a little more challenging to work through. If you're looking for a faster read, try The Cambridge Companion to Dietrich Bonhoeffer, edited by John W. de Gruchy.
