Bonhoeffer: A Guide for the Perplexed

by Joel Lawrence, Assistant Professor of Systematic Theology
(T&T Clark)

Bethel Seminary St. Paul Lawrence’s work explores the theology of Dietrich Bonhoeffer as part of T&T Clark’s series “Guides for the Perplexed,” which aims at guiding readers through the difficult and challenging material in the subject’s thought and writings. The book serves as an introduction, but also moves beyond basic introductory material to a deeper engagement with Bonhoeffer’s theology.

Johann Christoph Blumhardt: An Account of His Life

by Friedrich Zundel.
edited by Christian T. Collins Winn, Assistant Professor of Historical and Systematic Theology, and Charles E. Moore Blumhardt (1805-1880)
(Cascade Books)

Charlies E. Moore Blumhardt is relatively unknown in America, but is widely recognized in his native Germany, in part because of this landmark biography, now available in English for the first time. Blumhardt’s parish was thrust into the public eye during an epic battle between the forces of good and evil described in Zundel’s work, and the awakening that followed continues to draw seekers. This biography is compelling on a historical level, but is also infused with enduring pastoral insights and spiritual wisdom.
