Reclaiming Bonhoeffer Author

Charles Marsh, the acclaimed author of Reclaiming Bonhoeffer discusses his new book, Strange Glory: A life of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, which the Wall Street Journal calls “truly beautiful and heartbreaking.” Dietrich Bonhoeffer was a German theologian and  anti-Nazi dissident who was executed by the Nazis just weeks before the end of the war in Europe.

Marsh is a Guggenheim fellowship winner and senior professor at UVa. His past Bonhoeffer book was praised by Bonhoeffer best friend (and first biographer) Eberhard Bethge. His new Bonhoeffer book is published by Random House.
