Writings from a number of authors who held to the "Moral Government" theory of the atonementa modern variety of Pelagianism.

Background on the Campbellite movement, which gave rise to the Disciples of Christ and the Churches of Christ.
This page touts Barth as "a church Father . . . among us, a theologian of such creative genius, prodigious productivity, and pervasive influence that his name is already being associated with that elite group of Christian thinkers that includes Athanasius, Augustine, Anselm, Aquinas, Luther and Calvin." Well, anyway, he's the Father of Neo-Orthodoxy. I guess that makes him a "Church Father" of sorts. But we would not include him in such rarefied company.
Bonhoeffer was a martyr who valiantly opposed German Nazism and paid for his resistance with his life. Some of his writings, particularly The Cost of Discipleship, and Letters and Papers From Prison endure as classic devotional works that challenge readers to deeper devotion to Christ. But Bonhoeffer's theology was tainted with neo-orthodoxy and existentialism. He was, in the final analysis, unorthodox.
