Perspective

Bonhoeffer's Life Together: The Classic Exploration of Faith in Community is told in the first person plural "we" from the community's point of view. Dietrich Bonhoeffer is the director of a community of seminarians. He is educated as a Protestant theologian and pastor. Although Bonhoeffer writes in the first person plural, content of the narrative is clearly that of the community leader. He writes to inform the community brethren about spiritual and moral issues. The author is a Christian pastor who is committed personally and in his teaching to follow the call of Jesus Christ. Bonhoeffer's perspective is that of a theologian writing a moral treatise. He is not a storyteller of tales, actions and events in seminary life. The author writes for seminarians and others who may want to believe in and follow the Christian principles and way of life he describes and is committed to.
