Dietrich Bonhoeffer and the Ethical Self

Full Product Description

Dietrich Bonhoeffers work has persistently challenged Christian consciousness due to both his death at the hands of the Nazis and his provocative prison musings about Christian faithfulness in late modernity. Although understandable given the popularity of both narrative trajectories, such selective focus obscures the depth and fecundity of his overall corpus. Bonhoeffers early work, and particularly his Christocentric anthropology, grounds his later expressed commitments to responsibility and faithfulness in a world come of age. While much debate accompanies claims regarding the continuity of Bonhoeffers thought, there are central motifs which pervade his work from his doctoral dissertation to the prison writings. This book suggests that a concern for otherness permeates all of Bonhoeffers work. Furthermore, Clark Elliston articulates, drawing on Bonhoeffer, a Christian self-defined by its orientation towards otherness. Taking Bonhoeffer as both the origin and point of return, the text engages Emmanuel Levinas and Simone Weil as dialogue partners who likewise stress the role of the other for self-understanding, albeit in diverse ways.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer and the Ethical Self by Clark J. Elliston was published by Fortress Press,U.S. in October 2016. The ISBN for Dietrich Bonhoeffer and the Ethical Self is 9781451496260.
