This article focuses on Bonhoeffer's thoughts on the missionary presence of the church in the world. In the discussion two books by Bonhoeffer are mainly referred to: his Nachfolge (1937) and his Ethik (1943). Although features in his theological thinking remind us of a universalism like that of Karl Barth, the biblical content of his writings is of such quality that we are compelled to take him very seriously.
