WINNER of the 2011 "Retailers Choice Awards" for 'Auto/Biography'!


From the New York Times bestselling author of Amazing Grace, this is a groundbreaking biography of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, one of the greatest heroes of the twentieth century, the man who stood up to Hitler.


A definitive, deeply moving narrative, Bonhoeffer is a story of moral courage in the face of the monstrous evil that was Nazism. After discovering the fire of true faith in a Harlem church, Bonhoeffer returned to Germany and became one of the first to speak out against Hitler. As a double agent, he joined the plot to assassinate the Führer and was hanged in Flossenbürg concentration camp at age thirty-nine. Since his death, Bonhoeffer has grown to be one of the most fascinating, complex figures of the twentieth century. Bonhoeffer presents a profoundly orthodox Christian theologian whose faith led him to boldly confront the greatest evil of the twentieth century and uncovers never-before-revealed facts, including the story of his passionate romance.

Great book with excellent narration by Malcolm Hillgartner
I've owned a physical copy of this book for years, but was always too intimidated by the size to get started. Today I have long commute to and from work on the train and so I bought this audio book to help get me started. I'm really glad I did.

Malcolm Hillgartner, the narrator, does an excellent job and is very easy to listen to. He also pronounces the names and other German words/phrases in this book with a good accent, which is nice because I'm living in Germany and it would probably bother me if he said everything with a strong American accent.

The book itself is well written and fascinating. I find myself looking forward to my commute to and from work every day just so I can read again. I'm still only half way through the book, but I can say that if the author finishes as well as he began then this is a top quality book all around.

Worth the time investment!
So through, moving, and well-written. The audio version was perfect because I could have never pronounced all those German names.
