A collection of Bonhoeffer's work from 1928 up through the prison letters of 1944. Much of this is excerpted from his major works but I loved reading his correspondence with people like Karl Barth, his friend Eberhard Bethge, and his fiancee Maria. Also includes some prison poetry.

"A prison cell, in which one waits, hopes, does various unessential things, and is completely dependent on the fact that the door of freedom has to be opened from the outside, is not a bad picture of Advent."
