Bonhoeffer’s Poetry – Wannenwetsch, Northcott and O’Donovan articles

A friend recently emailed a copy of Bonhoeffer’s poem “Who Am I?” which reminded me that there had been a conference in Oxford on Bonhoeffer’s poems a few years ago.  A quick search revealed that the papers have now been published and even better two of them by Michael Northcott (on “Who Am I?”) and by Oliver O’Donovan (on “Past”) – and also the introduction by Bernd Wannenwetsch – are fully available on Google Books. Thanks to a great bit of code for embedding Google Book Previews into Word Press from Chad Butler (and some generous practical help from Kevin Chard) you can read the text below [gbooks id=”0567032221″ width=”600″ height=”600″]
