August 13th, 2012 – by Mark
Some of the readers of this blog will be aware that I have been working on a book on Dietrich Bonhoeffer. I have been working on this subject off and on for over thirty years. But I have been working on this project directly, off and on, since my last sabbatical, 2009-2010. I am as excited about this project as any I have worked on. As of this morning, August 13, 2012, I submitted the 400-page manuscript to Baker Academic. Hopefully we will have a book within a year. I say “we” because I have written this book with two former students, Anthony Siegrist and Daniel Umbel. The title of the book, named in the caption here, signals the thrust of the book.
I am not going to say more about the book now. I probably will later. But for those who want a slight taste of the argument, I will give you a link to an oral lecture I gave in the spring of 2011. (Feel free to leave comments about the oral lecture here.)
