One of the great classics of prison literature, Letters and Papers from Prison effectively serves as the last will and testament of the Lutheran theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer, executed by the Nazis after incarceration in Tegel Prison.

Acute and subtle, warm and perceptive, yet also profoundly moving, the documents collectively tell a very human story of loss, of courage, and of hope.

Bonhoeffer's story continues to be as vitally relevant, as politically prophetic, and as theologically significant, as it always has.

This abridged edition includes a new introduction by Samuel Wells

Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Samuel Wells

Dietrich Bonhoeffer (1906-45) is one of the most influential Protestant theologians of the twentieth century. His death at the hands of the Nazis has made him a modern martyr and an icon of radical Christianity. Samuel Wells is Vicar of St Martin in the Fields, London, and is the author and editor of many acclaimed books including What Anglicans Believe, God's Companions (shortlisted for the Michael Ramsey Prize) and Power and Passion, the 2007 Archbishop of Canterbury's Lent Book. Previously he was Dean of Chapel and Research Professor of Christian Ethics at Duke University, North Carolina, and has worked closely with Stanley Hauerwas.
