Image credit: IMDB

Winner of the 2004 Religion Communicators Council's Wilbur Award for best documentary film, BONHOEFFER: PASTOR, PACIFIST, NAZI RESISTER engagingly tells the story of Dietrich Bonhoeffer (1906–1945), the young German theologian who offered one of the first clear voices of resistance to Adolf Hitler.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer openly challenged his church to stand with the Jews in their time of need, and eventually joined in a plot to kill Hitler. In this widely praised documentary, extraordinary footage is interwoven with interviews with friends, family, and students of Bonhoeffer and with historians and theologians.

The critically acclaimed film documentary by Martin Doblmeier, which was released in theaters around North America in 2003 and aired on PBS this fall, is now available from Fortress Press. To order, visit their website at or call 1-800-426-0115 ext. 234. You can also find it here on
