Fortress Press Bonhoeffer and King: Their Legacies and Import for Christian Social Thought

In Bonhoeffer and King Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Martin Luther King, Jr. -- giants of recent Christian social thought -- are reassessed for a new context and a new generation.

Both men combined activism, ministry, and theology, took on public roles in opposition to prevailing powers of their time, professed a kind of Christian realism and ended as martyrs for their respective causes.

Here leading voices in Christian social thought revisit the insights, causes, and strategies that Bonhoeffer and King employed in resistance to pervasive discrimination and prejudice in their era for a new generation and its similar concerns: race, reconciliation, nonviolence, political violence, Christian theological identity, and ministry.
