In addition, a new journal on Bonhoeffer will be published later this year by ATF. The editorial board of this will be chaired by Terry Lovatt, and others will include Maurice Schild (Adelaide), Rachael Kohn (Sydney), Kevin Lenehan (Melbourne) and John Moses (Canberra). This most likely will be a yearly journal. I will have an article in the first issue on Bonhoeffer and the New Testament. Watch this space.
