E 163 Bonhoeffer's Ethics: Between Pacifism and Assassination (2011)

Bonhoeffer is known as a radical pacifist.So how was it he felt able to participate in the plots to assassinate Hitler? The reasons lie in his radical and challenging thinking about Christian ethics.

This fascinating study traces the influence of Luther's ethics on the young Bonhoeffer, his radical change of heart, and his questioning of all 'systems' of ethics in the face of the call to discipleship as radical dependence on relationship with God.
