Anxious Souls Will Ask by John W. Matthews

Anxious Souls Will Ask

The Christ-Centered Spirituality of Dietrich Bonhoeffer

by John W. Matthews

Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
2 Hrs. 20 Min.


John Matthews has been captivated by Dietrich Bonhoeffer for thirty years, long before the film brought this modern Christian martyr back into the public eye. This book will take you into Bonhoeffer’s struggle of terror and faith in his Letters and Papers from Prison. Guided by Matthews’s keen mind and pastoral courage, you will be led past the crumbling pillars of worn religiosity to the hidden disciplines through which Christians live in difficult times. - David L. Tiede, Luther Theological Seminary

Anxious Souls Will Ask . . . is a powerful and poignant companion to Bonhoeffer’s Letters and Papers from Prison. Newcomers to Bonhoeffer’s text and Bonhoeffer scholars alike will benefit from the fruits of John Matthews’s pilgrimage alongside Bonhoeffer. - Jean Bethke Elshtain, University of Chicago Divinity School

Here is a useful “reader’s guide” to key Bonhoeffer texts that profoundly deepens both one’s sense of the importance of “foundations” for living and one’s sense that such commitments, in order to be seriously held, require more than mouthing abstract platitudes. - James Patrick Kelly, University of the South, SEWANEE

John W. Matthews is Sr. Pastor of Grace Lutheran Church in Apple Valley, Minnesota, and vice president of the International Bohnhoeffer Society's English Language Section.
