Dr Guido de Graaff is Tutor for Christian Doctrine and Ethics and Director of Studies at the Southeast Institute for Theological Education (SEITE) London. He is Secretary of the Society for the Study of Christian Ethics (UK).Helps readers in connecting concepts of Christian political thought to personal experienceDiscusses the friendship in relation to the Christian tradition of political thoughtMakes an unique contribution to the topic of friendship and politicsGuido de Graaff is Tutor for Christian Doctrine and Ethics and Director of Studies at the Southeast Institute for Theological Education (SEITE) London UK. He is Secretary of the Society for the Study of Christian Ethics (UK).Guido de Graaff explores the political dimension and significance of friendship arguing that its specific contribution lies not only in its theological approach but also in its particular focus distinguishing the śpolitical from the śsocial and/or ścivic. The books explorations are framed around a particular story of friendship: the story of Bishop George Bell and German theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Drawing on Hannah Arendt and Oliver ODonovan de Graaff argues that Bell and Bonhoeffers story can be read as one of friends assuming the responsibility of political judgment in an emergency situation their story casts doubts on secular politics as the primary context for interpreting the friends judgments. Thus the book provides a more comprehensive account of the story also interpreting it against the background of the life of the church (with special attention to John 15 and Romans 12). De Graaff concludes by showing how a theological account is vital for discerning the distinct politics of the church including opportunities for Christian engagement in secular politics.An exploration of the political significance of friendship generally and in the context of church life emphasizing the role of judgment as a shared political practice.AcknowledgementsIntroductionChapter 1.
