Bonhoeffer on Salvation

I recently read Dietrich Bonhoeffer's, The Cost of Discipleship, for a class.  I decided to research him to see where he was theolgoically as many evangelicals see him as one of us but I do not think so.  He was more neo-orthodox.  Here is what he says about salvation in his book, Ethics:
In the body of Jesus Christ God is united with humanity, all of humanity is accepted by God, and the world is reconciled with God. In the body of Jesus Christ God took upon himself the sin of the whole world and bore it. There is no part of the world, be it never so forlorn and never so godless, which is not accepted by God and reconciled with God in Jesus Christ. Whoever looks on the body of Jesus Christ in faith can no longer speak of the world as if it were lost, as if it were separated from Christ. Ethics, 53.
