Abstract

Michael DeJonge’s Bonhoeffer’s Theological Formation provides an insightful
and compelling reading of Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s early theology, focusing
primarily on his 1929 Habilitationshrift, Act and Being. At one level, DeJonge
carefully contextualises and exegetes a notoriously difficult text. At another,
he argues for a specific approach to understanding this text: Bonhoeffer’s
early theology is governed by a distinctly Lutheran conception of the person
of Christ. In this review I will overview some of the central moves that
DeJonge makes, and indicate just one point where his argument requires
clarification
