    Abstract

    In this case study, I examine what the orders of creation meant for theology in Germany during the 1930s and ’40s as the Nazis rose to power. I compare the theology of Dietrich Bonhoeffer to that of two well-known creation order theologians—Paul Althaus and Emanuel Hirsch. Finally, I consider Bonhoeffer’s theology of the four mandates in Ethics as an alternative answer to völkisch creation order theology.
