  • "After Ten Years": Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Our Times

    How does one read the signs of the times? What does it mean to resist? How do we engage faithfully in struggle? Dietrich Bonhoeffer has achieved iconic status as one who epitomizes what it means to struggle and resist tyranny and fascism and how one acts in faithful witness as a religious and political commitment. Bonhoeffer’s witness and example is more relevant than ever. A testimony to that is a crucial essay penned by Bonhoeffer in 1942; “After Ten Years” is a succinct and sober reflection, and remains one of the best descriptions ever written about what happened to the German people under National Socialism. This volume presents this timely and unique essay in a fresh translation and a penetrating introduction and analysis of the importance of this essay—in Bonhoeffer’s time and now in our own.

  • The Collected Sermons of Dietrich Bonhoeffer: Volume 2

    In his preaching, Dietrich Bonhoeffer's strong, personal faith—the foundation for everything he did—shines in the darkness of Hitler's Third Reich and in the church struggle against it.

  • Reviving Old Scratch: Demons and the Devil for Doubters and the Disenchanted

    Reviving Old Scratch: Demons and the Devil for Doubters and the Disenchanted

    The devil has fallen on hard times. Surveys say that even the majority of Christians doubt his existence. And burdened by doubts skeptical believers find themselves divorced from Jesus’ dramatic confrontation with Satan in the Gospels and the struggle that galvanized the witness of the early church. Reviving Old Scratch reintroduces the devil to the modern church with a biblical, bold and urgent vision of spiritual warfare where we resist the devil by joining the Kingdom of God’s subversive campaign to interrupt the world with love.
