The Battle for Bonhoeffer (by Stephen R. Haynes) … a political agenda discussion

The author is a well-known expert on Bonhoeffer. However, this book is an examination of how his writings are being used as political agendas.

I have a problem with the author’s editorializing about the current administration. Whether or not you are a Trump supporter, by adding the postscript, “Christians who love Bonhoeffer but (still) support Trump…” and attacking Eric Metaxas’ book, “Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy,” he turned me off any of the positive things that were part of the book.

Thank you to NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for my honest review.
