Item Description...
Stephen Haynes offers a provocative assessment of the Bonhoeffer mystique, which interprets Bonhoeffer's legacy through the medium of sainthood. Before casting an eye on the great pastor-theologian through a hagiographic lens, Haynes examines various receptions and appropriations of Bonhoeffer from different theological, ecclesial, and political contexts. Bonhoeffer is viewed from such divergent perspectives as radical theology and politics (exemplified in "death of God" theology), liberal theology and social ethics, conservative popular Christianity and evangelicalism, and lastly, the universal portrait of Bonhoeffer, which highlights his ecumenical significance. The Bonhoeffer Phenomenon provides an invaluable introduction to Bonhoeffer studies, while also offering its own unique analysis of Bonhoeffer's life and thought.

Publishers Description
Stephen Haynes's provocative study articulates the many motives and agendas that readers and scholars have brought to their study of Bonhoeffer, making it difficult to assess objectively the relationship of his political and religious commitments, the real meaning of his theology, and his words and actions on behalf of Jews. Reading Haynes's book helps us learn not only what Bonhoeffer has to teach us but also what it is we most desire to learn.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Informed, informative, fascinating reading   Aug 9, 2004
The Bonhoeffer Phenomenon: Portraits Of A Protestant Saint by Stephen R. Haynes (Associate Professor of Religion, Rhodes College, Memphis, Tennessee) offers a groundbreaking assessment of Dietrich Bonhoeffer and his continuing mystique and popularity among seminar students, theologians, and the Christian community so many years after his martyrdom at the hands of the Nazis. After the informative introduction "Beyond the Historical Bonhoeffer", this descriptive analytical history addresses the question "Who is Bonhoeffer for Us?" in terms of Seer (The Radical Bonhoeffer), Prophet (The Liberal Bonhoeffer), Apostle (The Conservative Bonhoeffer), and Bridge (The Universal Bonhoeffer). The next major section is dedicated to "Interpreting the Bonhoeffer Phenomenon" in terms of Saint (The Function and Form of Christian Hagiography), Cult (Expressions of the Bonhoeffer Phenomenon), and Domestication (The Perils of Protestant Sainthood). Enhanced with expensive notes, a substantial bibliography, and a thoroughly "user friendly" index, The Bonhoeffer Phenomenon is informed, informative, fascinating reading and a "must" for academic as well as non-specialist general readers with an interest in Dietrich Bonhoeffer's life and writings.
