In this landmark volume of contemporary communication theory, Ronald C. Arnett applies the metaphor of dialogic confessionwhich enables historical moments to be addressed from a confessed standpoint and through a communicative lensto the works of German theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer, who pointed to an era of postmodern difference with his notion of a world come of age. Arnetts interpretations of Bonhoeffers life and scholarship in contention with Nazi dominance offer implications for a dialogic confession that engages the complexity of postmodern narrative contention.

Rooted in classical theory, the field of communication ethics is abstract and arguably outmoded. In Dialogic Confession: Bonhoeffers Rhetoric of Responsibility, Arnett locates cross-cultural and comparative anchors that not only bring legitimacy and relevance to the field but also develop a conceptual framework that will advance and inspire future scholarship.
