A study of two of the most significant prophetic leaders in the twentieth century, J. Deotis Roberts's "Bonhoeffer and King" is an instructive work in theological ethics. This book considers and compares the theological reflections that guided Bonhoeffer's courageous stand against Nazism and King's quest for civil rights in America.
