K. E. Løgstrup’s The Ethical Demand, first published in 1956, has proved to hold insights that give it continued resonance in Scandinavian theology and beyond. Among other things, its rejection of a Christian ethic continues to be debated. Such a critical stance towards Christian ethics can also be found in Dietrich Bonhoeffer. But in contrast to Løgstrup, he can still endorse a Christian discipleship and the call to bear witness to Christ. By bringing Løgstrup and Bonhoeffer into conversation it can be argued that an ethic of responsibility as a responsive concept can open up for a Christian ethic in a third position
between compromise and radicalism.
