One of the great classics of prison literature, Letters and Papers from Prison effectively serves as the last will and testament of the Lutheran theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Dietrich Bonhoeffer was a young German pastor who was executed by the Nazis in 1945 for his part in the “officers’ plot” to assassinate Adolf Hitler.

Probably more than you really need, and the first few hundred pages are mostly quite dull reading ('Dear Mum, please send chocolate and volume three of seventeen of Schneergartenwiegrunde's 'Systematic Theory'), and then you feel bad for finding it dull because you remember that he's literally in a Nazi prison for trying to kill Hitler, and perhaps *you* are the problem? The theology is lovely, and fascinating, though, and well worth reading. The edition is handsome and readable, and I don't think most people will miss the extra 800 pages of notes from the critical, non-reader's edition, unless you need to know who Schneergartenwiegrunde was, and don't have access to DuckDuckGo.

Letters and Papers from Prison (LPP) by Dietrich Bonhoeffer is a fascinating creation of desperation and subtle suffering wrapped up within an understanding and reliance upon the Judeo-Christian God. Bonhoeffer is a Lutheran Theologian who was arrested by the Gestapo during the Second World War, due to his resistance to the Nazi Germany Regime. Bonhoeffer was executed by the way of hanging 23 days before the capture of Berlin, as someone that under no-circumstances, was to be allowed to survive. The horrors that occurred in Nazi Germany during the Second World War, can only be a reflection of the true nature of humanity. As humans, we must ask ourselves, whether we are capable of what the Nazi’s were. I believe that the answer would be yes. Therefore, would the next question we ask ourselves, not be; “Could we be capable of accosting Dietrich Bonhoeffer, and executing him, without charging him with anything?” The answer is once again, fairly obvious; yes. The depravity of humankind is such, that this would be no small feat.

LPP has done little in the way to challenge me. While retaining my interest in the beginning, it held it for far too short of a time, such that reading it became more of a chore than anything else. In a rather personal reflection, I feel greatly disappointed by a book, which I hoped for much from. I hoped to gather a greater knowledge into, not only a great man’s life, but also, into the prison life of the Second World War Nazi Germany prisons. I unfortunately failed to procure such an insight. Instead, I have learnt that prison is a wonderful place to get some good reading done, to fashion some essays of great thought, and to complain about the fact that you had not received face cloths and towels with a gift that your family procured for you. While this is a man’s life, I found that it was rather boring and disinteresting, and have come to the personal conclusion, that the letters should never have been included in it. LPP has done little more than encourage me to step up my reading habits.

While a few months’ worth of letters were lost, with his remaining time on Earth being spent in a concentration camp (preventing further writings), Bonhoeffer's prison life is documented in an un-endearing way. The trivialities which so populate his writings to friends and family, detract from the knowledge that he would otherwise have imparted. The letters were overall, very uninteresting. Occasional sparks of brilliance made them partially worth their while to read. Overall it was a challenging read; but not for the reasons of intellectually challenging. Rather, it was hard to get through, and failed to hold a continual interest. The ‘papers’ on the other hand that Bonhoeffer wrote, certainly held much more of a fascination, to my interest. The ‘papers’ certainly had a greater attraction, as they covered more than what books Bonhoeffer wanted to read next. Bonhoeffer certainly discussed some incredible topics through these ‘papers’. Such a topic is one of his opening statements in his paper; After Ten Years: “Time is the most precious gift in our possession, for it is the most irrevocable. This is what makes it so disturbing to look back on time we have lost. Time lost is time when we have not lived a full human life, time unenriched by experience, creative endeavour, enjoyment and suffering. Time lost is time we have not filled, time left empty.” Bonhoeffer's poetry that is displayed later in the book, is lacking in quality, but I am quite happy to put that up to the fact it was translated from German. Bonhoeffer's prayers are interesting, but I would much rather stick to the prayers that come from the Bible.

From my veracious statements so far, it would be axiomatic to presume that I disliked the book you would be right, if that were the case. While LPP was a book that I struggled through, and gained little in the way of personal gratification or knowledge, LPP is at the end of the proverbial day, a self-history on a Lutheran theologian, and the life that he held while being imprisoned. If one could read just the ‘papers’ section, then much more could be gained from a mediocre book, on the life of a man who deserved more than this.
