Thinking about the bit in the Ethics where he talks about the almost 'cavalier' attitude Jesus has to morality, as opposed to the attitude of the Pharisees, this is very broad brush exegesis. He reads the character of Jesus by referring briefly to a couple of stories, and expresses it in a contemporary way. He isn't concerned to examine the implications of Jesus' words and actions for his own time, but hurries on to make his points for his (B's) day.
Vivid, making links between biblical and contemporary worlds, and in haste. Bonhoeffer was short of time, but also hastening on to the question of how we live, and what does it mean today.

(As if I knew what I was talking about!)
