Bonhoeffer on Prayer

Bonhoeffer on Prayer

Samuel CHIOW

The emphasis on concreteness can be seen to pervade Bonhoeffer's thought and action.

Bonhoeffer's life exhibited the unity of prayer and righteous action; in his thought they are inextricably linked together, so much so that in certain situations they are virtually synonymous. Prayer, for Bonhoeffer, may be seen as an integral part of a concrete faith; thus , an examination of his theological thinking on prayer, both as lived out in his life and as formulated in his works, is significant for a clearer understanding of his theology as a whole.
