In Bonhoeffer as Martyr, Craig J. Slane defends the thesis that Bonhoeffer was a Christian martyr and uses his view of martyrdom as a tool to interpret Bonhoeffer’s life and theology. Dietrich Bonhoeffer is a figure that raises strong emotion in many that study him. He is revered for his courage as an advocate for Jews in Nazi Germany. He is considered suspect because of his involvement in the Abwehr and their attempts to assassinate Adolf Hitler. Few are able to take a neutral approach to Bonhoeffer as a man or as a theologian. Slane is no different. He is unashamed of the admiration he feels for Bonhoeffer, but it is a calculated admiration. Slane divides his study into three parts. In the first he examines what it means to be a Christian martyr and applies this to Bonhoeffer’s life, defending the thesis that Bonhoeffer should be considered a martyr. Second, Slane attempts to construct the tools he needs to interpret Bonhoeffer’s life and theology with martyrdom as the keystone. Finally, he applies this key to Bonhoeffer, concentrating on the Finkenwalde experiment.
