Bonhoeffer’s Politics

Bonhoeffer was not a liberal or a conservative, but a Christian. He was zealous for God’s perspective on things, and God’s perspective is inevitably wider than the standard parochial political points of view. It sometimes forces us toward a liberal view and sometimes toward a conservative view.

A fantastic quote from author Eric Metaxas, courtesy of this Harper’s interview. Metaxas wrote the well-received Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy.
