Abstract

The author considers Bonhoefferś demand to interpret the Christianity in a non-religious way to be actual even today. Acoording to him although various religious subcultures are expanding today, the secularization of the Euro-American culture is still going on and showing that religion has been just a historically deterrmined, and therefore only transitory human phenomenon. Thus the non-religious interpretation of Christianity consists for him in eliminating what Bonhoeffer called religion i e. metaphysics, individualism, understanding God as deus ex machina, the tutorship and dispensability of religion. The core of Bonhoeffferś non-religious Christianity is in his understanding human existence as participating on Godś suffering in the world.
