I have a 1965 copy of No Rusty Swords. It is a collection of Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s writings.  The cover jacket describes the volume…

NO RUSTY SWORDS describes Bon-

hoeffer’s years of academic train-

ing, his travels to Spain, his visit

to the United States, his work as

a pastor and a teacher, and his

prompt and powerful opposition to

the Nazi regime…

In these pages Bonhoeffer’s pri-

vate wrestling with the basic reli-

gious concerns of our times is re-

vealed.  NO RUSTY SWORDS movingly

portrays the man who knew the

cost of discipleship, and who paid

the price in full.
