"Strange Glory: A Life of Dietrich Bonhoeffer" by Charles Marsh

Strange Glory cover image  

In his new book, Strange Glory: A Life of Dietrich Bonhoeffer (Knopf, 2014), Charles Marsh powerfully brings to life the struggles, triumphs, and transformations of Dietrich Bonhoeffer—German pastor, dissident, and conspirator in the resistance against Hitler and the Nazi party. No other theologian has crossed as many boundaries as Bonhoeffer while remaining exuberantly, generously Christian.

Charles Marsh is the cofounder of Theological Horizons and Commonwealth Professor of Religious Studies at UVa, where he directs The Project on Lived Theology.
