Profile in Systematic Theology: Dietrich Bonhoeffer
"Dietrich Bonhoeffer, (born February 4, 1906, Breslau, Germany [now Wrocław, Poland]—died April 9, 1945, Flossenbürg, Germany), German Protestant theologian important for his support of ecumenism and his view of Christianity's role in a secular world. His involvement in a plot to overthrow Adolf Hitler led to his imprisonment and execution. His Letters and Papers from Prision, published posthumously in 1951, is perhaps the most profound document of his convictions." (Encyclopedia Britannica, s.v.
