Description

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.

If you've always wanted to KNOW Bonhoeffer, this is as close as you can come!
This book isn't intended to be a portrayal of the events of WW2, but an account of the life and martyr's death of one of Christendom's most noble saints of the 20th century. I speak in respect to a previous reviewer's comments.

In light of this fact the book is a gargantuan success. This work is astoundingly detailed; the research and preparation to write must have taken the better part of a year.

As a result of this book I feel as though I know the man having vicariously been through his struggles and triumphs. Furthermore Bonhoeffer's devotion to his faith has stirred in me an introspective search for faith of the same stellar quality.

An excellent work, well worth the time to listen to this masterful narration, hats off to Eric Metaxas!
