Two Martyrs in a Godless World

Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Alexander Men
  • By Michel Evdokimov, Jeremy Ingpen, Clement Olivier
$24.95
Product Description

This brief and compelling study introduces us to the German Lutheran pastor, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, and the Russian Orthodox priest, Father Alexander Men. These two martyrs each confronted a hostile, totalitarian world, and their lives show us how to speak about Christ in a world that has forgotten God. Contrasting the lives of two 20th century martyrs to Nazi and Soviet power, Michel Evdokimov challenges us to meet the world on its own terms and to meet God in the form of our neighbor.


By putting Alexander Men and Dietrich Bonhoeffer into conversation with each other, Michael Evdokimov has made an invaluable contribution to the timely and complex question of the church's relationship to a post-Christendom world. This is a text that is both deeply theological and readily accessible to students and the lay reader, and I would recommend it as a textbook for seminary classes and parish studies on what it means to be Christian in an age that no longer even bothers to lip service to the God of Jesus Christ.

--Dr. Barry Harvey, Professor of Theology at Baylor University and author of Taking Hold of the Real: Dietrich Bonhoeffer and the Profound Worldliness of Christianity (Cascade)
