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.

Riveting account, especially towards the end of the book. I found the beginning of the book a little bit more tedious but still interesting.

The Essential Bonhoeffer Biography
Love this book! Well written, well researched, and well paced - this is a great book for a long road trip or daily commute. Would recommend to anyone interested in theology, WWII history, or church history.

Long but excellent
Someone lent me this book to read. I never got to it and I know now I never would have finished it. Long and very detailed particularly with respect to the development of Nazi Germany and the war. But excellent if you have the time, I enjoyed it commuting to work.
