Bonhoeffer’s early paintings, and especially his Christocentric anthropology, grounds his later expressed commitments to accountability and faithfulness in a "world come of age." whereas a lot debate accompanies claims concerning the continuity of Bonhoeffer’s notion, there are critical motifs which pervade his paintings from his doctoral dissertation to the legal writings. This ebook means that a priority for otherness permeates all of Bonhoeffer’s paintings. additionally, Clark Elliston articulates, drawing on Bonhoeffer, a Christian self-defined by means of its orientation in the direction of otherness. Taking Bonhoeffer as either the starting place and aspect of go back, the textual content engages Emmanuel Levinas and Simone Weil as discussion companions who likewise rigidity the position of the opposite for self-understanding, albeit in different methods. by means of examining Bonhoeffer "through" their voices, one complements Bonhoeffer’s already fertile knowing of responsibility.
